About this work of Art
Paul’s Hedgerow Bouquet III
Original Floral Painting
Oil Paint on Canvas
Canvas Size: H 30cm W 30cm x D 3cm
When talking about this piece, Elaine said: The last of the hedgerow flowers! Another little still life based on the delightful bouquets of wild flowers that I buy from Paul. He makes these charming bunches of flowers by foraging them from local hedgerows and sells them on Magdalen Road Bridge, Oxford. I cycle past on my way to the studio and get them when I can, but sadly – no more until next spring.
Many of Elaine Kazimierczuk’s works are based on interpretations of intimately-known localities, frequently, but not exclusively, in her native Nottinghamshire. In her semi-abstract studies of meadows, trees and hedgerows, she achieves a tension between looseness and control, which enables her to convey that intricate assembly of wild beauty. Frequently working on a red ground, which resonates with the vibrant overpainting, she adopts a bold approach, so that there is an evident freedom, just short of capriciousness, either of hand or eye, in the brushwork. Her works represent the ordered chaos of the natural world with energy and vitality. Elaine Kazimierczuk has recently been awarded the Mary Moser Prize for 2018.
