Description

James Ainslie
modern realism / abstract

James Ainslies preferred palette is acrylic paint on paper, with the occasional use of mixed media.
His forte is modern realism, although he also produces abstract art.
Ainslies paintings resonate with an inherent passion for the countrys unique beauty, particularly the sandy dunes and reflective waters of Queensland and South Australia.
Ainslie was born in SA in 1950, graduated in art from the South Australian School of Art and has exhibited throughout Australia and overseas since 1975. Sand and water have always inspired his work, harking back to a childhood in South Australia, spent playing around the Coorong and exploring the huge sand tracts around the Murray River. Now living in Noosa, he has turned his attention to the undulating dunes of Fraser Island and the many beaches along the Sunshine Coast shoreline.
Annual visits to Broome ensure that Kakadu and The Kimberley remain strong influences.
Ainslie was regularly an artist in residence at Ayers Rock, and was invited to represent South Australia in London with 6 other artists, and showed at the Museum of Fine Art in Pasadena, U.S.A. with Ainslie Roberts and Garry Duncan. James won the prestigious Camberwell Flora & Fauna Prize in 1990 and was co-winner of the Barossa Valley Heritage Award.
His work is featured in prestigious collections such as Artbank; BP Australia; Reserve Bank of Australia; Mobil Australia; William Hancock collection, San Francisco; Bankers Trust; Diamond Merchants, South Africa; and many public and private collections worldwide.
