Jesse Auersalo’s distinctive, character-driven work is marked by an aesthetic he describes as ‘polished and clean, sticky and dirty. Dark and intimidating, Jesse’s the attention to detail and meticulous rendering contrast, mostly black & white or sepia creates strong iconic images that hints at highly conceptualized S&M.
A very-multi talented Australian artist : Norman Lindsay
Norman Alfred William Lindsay (22 February 1879 – 21 November 1969) was an Australian artist, sculptor, writer, editorial cartoonist, scale modeler, and an accomplished amateur boxer. He was born in Creswick, Victoria.
Small stories :
His frank and sumptuous nudes were highly controversial. In 1940, Rose Soady, his model then wife, took sixteen crates of paintings, drawings and etchings to the U.S. to protect them from the war. Unfortunately, they were discovered when the train they were on caught fire and were impounded and subsequently burned as pornography by American officials.
Soady’s older brother Lionel remembers Lindsay’s reaction:
"Don’t worry, I’ll do more."
Lindsay’s creative output was vast, his energy enormous. Several eyewitness accounts tell of his working practices in the 1920s. He would wake early and produce a watercolour before breakfast, then by mid-morning he would be in his etching studio where he would work until late afternoon. He would work on a concrete sculpture in the garden during the afternoon and in the evening write a new chapter for whatever novel he was working on at the time.
