Idun Eustace  – Painter/Lecturer


“An artist must never be a prisoner. Prisoner? An artist should never be a prisoner of himself, prisoner of reputation, prisoner of success etc.” Henri Matisse

My paintings, painted in oil, depict mostly the gestural, abstract landscape, & still life. They have recently become more simplified with a more limited palette.

My work nearly always relate to people, places or dreams, current or in the past and show how I grapple with the influence of my emotional environment, in situations & with the people around me.

My work can be found in private collections in the UK & Norway. I exhibit regularly, twice yearly at the Wimbledon Art Studios and elsewhere in London or galleries in the South East.

Artists who have inspired my work: Auerbach, Munch, Tapies, W. Scott, Diebenkorn, Hitchens, Twombly, Blow, Hilton, Rothko, Heron, Matisse, Morandi, Hoyland, Hodgkin, Picasso & friend & former colleague, Francis Bowyer, PPres RWS, who has been a huge influence.

I have since 1998 until present, lectured in Fine Art, Oil Painting & Life drawing, at all levels. I frequently arrange Life drawing workshops in my studio & I am available for Commissions & tuition.
