Art Verdure
2013


A floral arrangement inhabits a space, a location where leaves, petals, and branches converse. Translating floral shapes and edges to forms and lines on the canvas reveals the spaces in between.

These paintings evoke the memory of the physical while expressing the fragility of something elemental to the human heart: a yearning for the ineffable.

The paintings are memories of place, rather than representations of actual places. As such, these places are imaginary, existing in the space between reality and desire. Perceptible patterns and recognizable objects overlay less perceptible ones so that in many of these works, the figurative and abstract converge.
