Floral Masterpieces by Elisabeth Kruger at Eva Breuer Art Dealer. Great artwork! If you have the chance, don’t miss this event Yareah Magazine friends!
In her seventh solo exhibition at Eva Breuer Art Dealer, the Moet & Chandon award-winning artist, Elisabeth Kruger, draws us into the botanical world with her beautiful florals. Using the garden as a metaphor for the stages of human growth and experience, Kruger’s paintings are contemporary readings of the traditional still life genre.
Kruger’s delicate flowers tell a tale of femininity and the blush of youth. Larger than life, they take on human characteristics. The rosy buds and full blooms emerge in clusters from behind the lush foliage, like coy young girls with pink cheeks and ruffled dresses. They then transform to be apart of the space we live in, contently living amongst each other.
Kruger’s paintings have a cinematic quality, with details of flowers painstakingly enlarged and cropped to create dramatic images. These are stunning floral masterpieces with a contemporary edge.
Kruger was awarded the prestigious Moet & Chandon Art Fellowship (1989) and an overseas studio residency with the Visual Arts Board of the Australia Council (1990). Her work is represented in the Australian National Gallery, National Gallery of Victoria, Parliament House Collection, Artbank, Newcastle Region Gallery, University of Canberra, Macquarie University, ANZ Bank and Wesfarmers.
