About

WINTER SEEDS 3 is a large new watercolor on Arches paper by Fleur Thesmar. The artwork measures 22x30". (If framed in UV glass, it measures 26x34", and sells for $2000.) An extraordinarily detailed and composed scene, yet austere in its winter color palette – it expertly compresses the near foreground and the distant horizon, which enhances the feeling of being up close to the several wildflowers, the ice and water, the dormant but fertile seeds in waiting. From Fleur Thesmar – "The beautiful marshes of New England seem flat and gray, covered by snow during winter, an empty solitude. Yet the uncut wildflowers have faded and are full of seeds waiting for the spring and the migrating birds. It is all entangled but carries its own order. The shadows in the snow make it difficult to see where the water is and where it is frozen. Very often people drive by and don’t imagine the beauty." 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.
