2001

$12,800

About

In this painting, Catherine Holmburg presents a modern interpretation of a seventeenth-century still life on a monumental scale. The painting includes classical subjects, including a vase decorated with figures and the head of a classical sculpture, alongside a cascade of flowers. For the Dutch painters of the past, these still lifes of flowers were ruminations on the transience of beauty, here juxtaposed with the long-lasting and static antiques of a bygone culture. 57 x 42 inches, artwork 67.88 x 53.25 inches, frame Signed lower right Framed to conservation standards with a linen liner and a gold gilded moulding Holmburg is a native of Wisconsin.The combination of her vision and technique results in a richness and depth of surface suggesting contemporary version of Jan Vermeer's, the great Dutch master. "Artists such as Vermeer, Avery and O'Keefe are inspirations to me", Catherine notes. " I admire the glazed quality of Vermeer's paintings, the simplicity and strong compositions of Avery's work and the sensuality O'Keefe achieves with oil paint." She enjoys experimenting with each surface through glazing, rubbing and impasto techniques using mixed media of watercolor, pastel, acrylic and oil. Holmburg's themes include landscape and still life with mood. The technique Holmburg uses ranges from delicate transparent layering of oil colors to thick impasto strokes. She tends to paint large scale works (30"-50") on paper. Holmburg's studies and travel have inspired her to paint images that range from contemporary still life painting based on 17th century European masters to landscape paintings of the National Parks she has lived in and visited that are painted in a style similar to Joseph Mallord William Turner. Holmburg has a BFA from the Milwaukee Institute of Art and Design and a MFA from the Claremont Graduate School.
