The work of Dutch painter Esther Ziher-Ginczinger is almost overwhelmingly positive. The paintings are a whimsical blend of fantasy and reality, as she creates her own universe around humanized mascots and unique characters. Her style is known for its vibrant use of color, energetic brushstrokes, and sense of playfulness. Ginczinger's paintings transport the viewer to a world that is both familiar and fantastical, where her characters interact with one another in dynamic and unexpected ways.
The joy of the interactions between her main characters, called Wipi (bird) and Pepe (frog), is infectious. As animals play a large role in her life, she likes to highlight their capacity for love and their ability to bolster familial or friendly relations. Art for Esther is not in its outcome, but in its production. The pleasure of painting comes from the continuous self discovery in its process. The wide eyed animal subjects come to mirror the artist’s emotions, in this way Esther paints as tangible form of thought, freeing herself in the act. Ziher-Ginczinger’s paintings travel across the world to collectors in Asia, North America, and Europe.
