CLAIRE SOWER

Beyond Borders: an Exhibition of Fine Art from Canada
October 9 – October 29, 2015
Reception: Thursday, October 15, 2015 6-8 PM

Inspired by her artist father and the natural beauty of Vancouver, Claire Sower’s florals are tactile and interpretative, conveying a strong sense of tension and joy.  “I paint flowers because I love them, and because they offer either refuge… or an opportunity for celebration. Flowers exist without judgment,” notes Sower. Eschewing detail in favor of essence, Sower works quickly, using palette knives to build depth by layering paint, allowing colors to mix on the canvas. This brings a sense of immediacy to her work, which conveys a flower’s “living energy.”

Whether brilliantly colorful or nearly monochromatic, Sower’s organic, elemental constructs reveal the essence of nature’s design. She juxtaposes visual simplicity and emotional nuance, creating works that demand one’s full engagement through imagery that infuses the viewer with a lightness of being. Through color and texture, Sower adds an energetic exuberance to every piece, drawing on essentially simple shapes and evocative colors to allow the viewer's imagination to complete what their eye perceives. In this way, a painting’s initial simplicity belies a deeper, more compelling subtext.
