The Mystic Rock Paintings of M-J de Mesterton, Lifelong Artist
M-J de Mesterton in Her Painting Studio
M-J de Mesterton is the original rock painter, one of the most searched and viewed contemporary artists on the world wide web. M-J started creating psychedelic paintings of rocks and gems in 1974; her distinctive style has been imitated, never equaled. M-J de Mesterton paints the Western landscape up-close. Her work is characterized by vibrant, multi-layered rock-and gem-scapes and mystical compositions that suggest a higher plane of creation through elemental materials. M-J de Mesterton's paintings bridge the gap between representational and abstract conceptions--they celebrate the power of nature to transform mood; they bring balance to the environment in which you place them. M-J's paintings are beautiful expressions of a world that makes life possible.
M-J de Mesterton creates canvases in a wide range of sizes, from 5" X 7" to 66" X 72". Her wildly popular and well-reviewed show in Santa Fe, 2007, was called Oil Medium, Large and Small. Paintings by M-J de Mesterton appear in over sixty private collections around the world.
M-J's mission statement is devoid of complex terminology: "I use oil almost exclusively, and oil paint comes from rocks." Her compositions are vibrant, and they are moody and nuanced. She harbors a deep fascination with organic structure. "Every color we know comes from the ground below." Her fields of rocks are cold blue arroyos that run toward fading skies, and they are glowing sunlit shapes that combine power and sensuous abandon. Mélodie-Jeanne creates a voluptuous harmony that is uniquely pleasing.
