Painting figurative works, still lifes, and portraits, the French-born artist Corinne Garese (also known simply as Garese) skillfully blends classic artistic conventions and styles with decidedly modern elements. With a range of painterly techniques and modes at her disposal, each of her paintings is rendered in a unique manner, with a particular method adopted to the aesthetic concern of melding form and content. With this, there’s a decorative atmosphere in Garese’s works: a use of painterly gestures and textures to not only highlight the interpenetration of light, but to also lend her works a kind of otherworldly elegance.

In her oil on canvas work, Trèfle à Quatre Feuilles (Four-leaf Clover), Garese’s more Symbolist leanings come to the fore. Conveying a sense of mystery reminiscent of the paintings of Odilon Redon, Gareses’s comparatively more staid palette and interest in the relationship of light to shadow nevertheless creates a haunting scene—one both allegorical and figurative. Indeed, in terms of the realism with which the objects and person in the painting are rendered, a kind of cautionary tale seems to be described in images.
