Presenting the most coveted botanical flavors of the Victorian era from a fresh contemporary artist’s perspective: Fleur Nouveau by Amy E. Fraser
The Fleur Nouveau painting series is inspired by the beautiful abundance of blooms found in the spectacular floral gardens surrounding the artist’s studio.
The Fleur Nouveau collection is additionally influenced by Vintage French Botanical Illustrations as well as the ornamental approach of the Art Nouveau and the Arts and Crafts movements.
Fleur Nouveau: simple sophisticated elegance, creating a dramatic botanical statement in any space.
Fleur Nouveau ecstatically showcases the Artistic Process! Bold painterly texture, with the grit and magnificence of real world art materials. Art that invites the viewer to discover a beauty that resides in imperfection, with chunky layers, cracks, and material tactility. Oil pastels provide depth of color and texture while Acrylic glazes unify the surface, emphasizing the long sinuous flowing shapes, curving organic lines, and an overall grace of movement and design.
The Fleur Nouveau painting titles honor the fabulously floral French femme fatales that live vibrantly in the artist’s imagination.
