About

Contemporary still life oil painting with a cascade of flowers in every hue that celebrates beauty and joie de vivre, by Elizabeth Barlow, who meticulously creates oil portraits and still life compositions that feature objects to represent the essence of her subject. In this case the artist depicts the concept of "beauty" through the placement of flowers and their shadows. The oil on linen painting is a diptych (in two parts). Each panel is 30 x 18 inches. When hung side by side the overall dimension is 30 x 36 inches. Can hang in myriad ways - stacked or side by side with space between each painting. 'What Beauty is For' is minimal, serene and elegant. Colors are soft and uplifting. Barlow's humor and joy come into play in her artwork that bridges Realism with Pop, in her unique still life compositions. By skewing traditional portraiture and still life, Barlow captures individuals, and ideas, with her unique, contemporary style that she calls 'Portraits in Absentia'. The inspiration for this particular diptych painting comes from flowers collected from her own garden and local flower market. Elizabeth Barlow’s work has been recently exhibited at the New Museum Los Gatos, the Triton Museum of Art, and Marin MOCA, in California. This oil on linen painting was painted in 2019 for an exhibition at Andra Norris Gallery titled OPTIMISM. Artist signed and dated. Condition is excellent. 'What Beauty is For' is a delight to experience in person.
