Eloise Robbertze

Eloise was born in South Africa and has lived in Malta and Mauritius.

Eloise loves the island lifestyle! She is inspired by natural landscapes. Through her art, she encourages people to look at their natural surroundings intimately – from above, from below, sometimes from inside.

While our landscape seems constant, it is in fact always changing, often due to our direct influence on nature. She loves bright, bold colors in telling her stories and strives to showcase the colors and hues found in nature to share how beautiful our earth is.

A Cancerian, she is drawn to the ocean. It’s the place of birth and death and life in-between. Her images highlight the magnificent hues and tones of the sea. She is at her most creative when walking along the shore, watching the movement of the waves, the changing shapes of the sand and how the natural light creates a synergy between the two.

Boat on the Water – “A traditional fishing boat in Mauritius called a pirogue. Each boat is unique and often painted in colors representing the family who owns it.”

While living in Malta her images evolved to become more expressionist in their detail, and since moving to Mauritius she has developed her own style with aerial and abstract photography. She has found her voice in seascapes.

As an expressionist artistic photographer, her niche is High-Dynamic Range imaging and color-reversed negative photography. This is important to her: even in the shadows, when they are exposed, everything is there to be seen, if you just look.

Ethereal Sunset – “A sunset on the south coast of Mauritius. I love how the light is dancing on the water.”

Natures Symphony – “A symphony of pink and blue and purple as the sun sets over the ocean in Western Australia.”

Sea Tangle – “A glimpse into what lies beneath the ocean as the sun rises.”

“Not everyone is an artist but everyone is a fucking critic.”

Marcel Duchamp
