Royal Street Fine Art artist Deborah Bigeleisen is featured in many collections and magazines. Check out this great painting of hers in the Miami Home and Décor Magazine.
Flowers and nature have been the inspiration for Deborah’s artistic expression since childhood, and are the common thread that weaves through both her careers. She continues to be captivated by natural forms. Having begun her art career by painting Rembrandt-like portraits of illuminated white roses, she credits her discovery of fractals for totally transforming her vision. By stripping away the mask of the exterior form and magnifying her image beyond what is recognizable to the naked eye her subject is no longer simply a flower. Inspired now by the pure abstraction uncovered at her subject’s core, her canvasses explode with an entirely new choreography, energy and spirit. “I’ve been freed from any constraints inherent in creating representational work though the forms may suggest a natural likeness, reflective of their supple, sensuous and underlying erotic origins.” She focuses now on the movement and distribution of space across the canvas, using color and contrast to draw the viewer in then back them out. Using light as her muse, she works with oils and glazing mediums applying upwards of twenty translucent layers to mold her forms and give them a new life-force.
