Exhibition June 2017: intensely floral

The exhibition “intensely floral” celebrates my passion and admiration for the floral world, its energy and verve.

My paintings are contemporary renditions of floral images via colour, movement and distortion. 

Again, I explore the ephemeral quality of floral abundance without giving too much thought to its botanical details.  Still life in “intensely floral” actually turns into movement by capturing its poetic delight so central to the floral atmosphere.

Elie Siegel writes in Art as Energy: “Energy in art, art as energy, takes the withinness of things and makes it outward.”  Thus I endeavour for the viewer to see more, i.e. the deep is becoming the surface.
