About

SOUL MOUNTAIN is a new watercolor on Fabriano paper by Fleur Thesmar. The artwork measures 22x30". Note the flow of the landscape, the curves and fields of color, the texture of the natural world. The artist was inspired by the book "Soul Mountain" by the Chinese author Gao Xingjiang, who describes his journeys in rural China in vivid detail. From Fleur Thesmar – "I've never been to China, but the book inspired in me dreams of an endless mountain, sometimes in shadow, sometimes lit up by an erupting sky." 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.
