Laelie Berzon is a Visual Artist, living and working in Melbourne, Australia.
Laelie paints to understand her life as she’s living it, piece by piece, blending the dramatic influences of her Eastern European heritage with her modern perspectives to create a visual and emotional unfolding through the textural interchange of painting, collage and mixed media.
Influenced by childhood recollections of the portraits and illustrations of her Latvian Grandfather and the paintings, murals and sculpture collected by her parents, Laelie turns to painting as both a release and a healing platform; expressing her inner thoughts and emotions, epiphanies, reflections, complexities of human culture, speculations and imaginings through abstract visual language.
Widely travelled, Laelie draws inspiration from a mosaic of rich and diverse influences and paints with a unique voice. Her emergent body of work is compelling, candid and intriguing.
