This exhibition is one that is genuinely breathtaking!
Barbara Flowers Art
“Barbara begins each work with the concept of “The power of suggestion is greater than the statement of reality”. She intuitively layers passages of oil impasto using brushes and palette knives. Every applied stroke is then judged for balance of color, temperature, and shapes. A dialogue with the canvas begins to take place as the work progresses and the unexpected is always welcome. This process is never contrived and always leaves room for spontaneity. Barbara considers the painting complete, when the emotional component of the subject matter has been achieved.”
