Roses and Candlelight - Katharina Husslein
Folly & Muse
Size: 100 x 120 x 2 cm
Medium: Oils on Canvas
Katharina Husslein's new body of work are still life paintings of blossoming flowers in a range of vases and settings. Looking at old master paintings and today's flower photography, she creates contemporary oil paintings radiating color, art history and the joy of a moment in time where everything seems quietly perfect and the flowers are in full bloom.
The botanical paintings by Katharina Husslein have a 'carpe diem' and 'Memento Mori' character. Showcasing the beauty of a moment in time that is fragile and has to be enjoyed while it lasts. A metaphor as old as time, to seize the moment and enjoy it to its full extend.
Her still life paintings are hyperrealistic works of art full of color and depth and detail. They are timeless yet contemporary oil paintings to be enjoyed and passed down for generations.
