"APPLE BLOSSOM AND YEW", watercolor, flowers, tree, berries fruit, flora pattern

2020

About the Item

APPLE BLOSSOM AND YEW is a new watercolor on Arches paper by Fleur Thesmar. This is part of a series by the artist examining the inherent geometry and complexity of nature. It measures 22x30" and is unframed. Note the deep reds and subtle pinks in the berries and flowers, the several greens of the leaves in their folded and lattice forms. The whole lifted upward by the slender grey and tan tree branches, and all of it seemingly wind-blown and in motion against a deep blue sky. From Fleur Thesmar – "In the spring of 2020 I had an epiphany about the structure of trees. The watercolor "Apple Blossom and Yew" is part of an experiment, an effort to depict my vision of crystalline trees, or the natural space as a grid. I carried out this experiment of depth using patterns, which I believe reflect the true nature of space." Having moved her family from France to America, artist Fleur Thesmar closely observed the changes in her world – from the seemingly obvious such as surrounding landscapes, the light of day and weather, the flowers, trees and shorelines – to the smaller less obvious shifts, such as how one behaves in a new world, in a new home, how one cherishes certain belongings and certain memories. Her artistic practice is borne out of that close observation and shift in perspective, and has led to a number of successful gallery shows in the U.S. and internationally. Fleur Thesmar has shown at Beacon Gallery in Boston MA, 440 Gallery, Brooklyn NY, Old West Museum, Cheyenne WY, Belmont Art Gallery, Belmont MA, and Salon Ile-de-France 2020, Bourg-La-Reine, France. Her work is on permanent display at the Tower Hill Botanic Garden in Boylston, MA. Fleur Thesmar graduated from Ecole Polytechnique, Palaiseau, France. She received her MSc Telecommunications Telecom in Paris, France, and MSc Signal Processing & Communications, Imperial College, London, England. Fleur Thesmar Currently lives in Boston, MA, where she received teachings from the MFA Boston studio.

  • Janus, Botanical Watercolor & Gouache on Paper, 2 Bud Vases with Purple Flowers
    By Christina Haglid
    Located in Chicago, IL
    Two bud vases seemingly defy gravity as they teeter upon a watery surface in Christina Haglid's "Janus". This meticulously detailed watercolor invites the viewer to take a closer look at nature, to question what is seen and to enter into a newly created world. Intricate in her execution, Haglid uses watercolor as one might use a colored pencil. Layer upon layer of color is added to achieve this impressively detailed painting.

It has somehow been my guide. In the last four years, during the making of this work, that connection intensified as I started writing short stories and flash fiction while taking online classes. I find the process of writing and painting so different in almost every way, but there is something freeing and generative in writing which helps my painting process. Or perhaps it's a reminder of what painting is for me - something intuitive that needs to be trusted. And what they do have in common is a desire to encapsulate and distill a single moment, a story, about the complexity of our emotions and experiences. At the heart of my work is the recurring depiction of perseverance, strength of will, and a subtle optimism.
