The artist's Blooms collection is influenced by her recent sell-out exhibition Release, which featured paintings inspired by stories of letting go.
Bloom 8 is late Summer - long evenings, and the shift from bright colour into the warm golden hues of Autunm.
When creating these works, Genevieve also took inspiration from folk art and the dutch flower paintings. Specifically the use of a dark background to accentuate the combination of soft and bright colours of her work.
The collection takes the viewer through seasons, as the palettes reflect the changing colours of flora through the year.
The artist created these Bloom paintings to celebrate the feeling of release. Holding tight and then letting go of whatever is weighing on you leading to feelings of renewal and growth.
Genevieve has a signature style of soft flowing brushwork, which gives her work a very emotional quality. They are playful, colourful blooms of paint, made with deft stokes into layered glazes. First, three layers of colour are applied to the canvas. The top layer is a dark ground and the artist then carved a motif into the paint surface, revealing different textures and colours through the layers below. She then applied glazes giving life to the delicate floral arrangements on top.
Let these works spark feelings of release, transformation, and finally tranquility and peace. This collection of paintings will make a fantastic statement gallery wall to be the focal point of any room.
These works can be hung unframed, but if you’d like to have it framed we recommend simple oak tray frames.
