Spring Blooms 5 is an original abstract floral painting by Magdalena Morey capturing a sense of the freshness of Spring. This contemporary mixed media floral artwork by Magdalena Morey uses a combination of acrylic paints, pastels and gold leaf on a 3.5cm deep gallery wrapped canvas. The artwork is protected from dust and UV light by a thin layer of varnish. The painting continues around the sides of the canvas and is signed on the front.

"I've loved art for as long as I can remember; as a child I was captivated by the textures and colours of the elements of my surroundings. In my teens I specialised in Textiles for 5 years at art college before studying Painting at university for another 5 years. Many years later, and I am still just as entranced by the worlds of colour and texture!
My aim is to create artwork that intrigues and challenges our initial perceptions. I love the natural world and organic textures, forms and beauty are fundamental to my art. I am particularly fascinated in transient phenomena and enjoy using my art to attempt to capture the essence of individual moments in time.
I have lived in Poland, England, Switzerland and now Spain and am passionate about travelling. I regularly start off a new series of paintings using a photo or a memory from one of my journeys as a starting point. As I work on the first composition, I'll often find a detail or a technique that I'll want to expand on and will begin a second canvas, and so on, with the degree of abstraction tending to increase with each iteration.
Every painting is built up from multiple layers of acrylics, watercolours, pastels and gold leaf, with the goal of creating an interplay of texture, reflectivity and colour. I love using gold leaf due to the strength and vibrancy it brings to my work. Watercolours are often used to tint the metallic reflections, which leads to the colours changing continually with the viewer's perspective and the lighting conditions."
