"Ikebana," 48" x 48"
Oil on Canvas.
Darlene painted these flowers that are wildly expressed with heavy paint and active brush strokes. She wanted to have fun with this painting and to depict nature as it is and not contained to perfection in the vase which is buried under the profuse floral. With the colours of the flowers all in various shapes and varieties they present a wild and free state yet compliment in a tangle of an unruly display. Perfection is not the focus, it is simply the beauty of each shape.
Canadian artist Darlene Winfield's style is impressionistic while at times leaning into semi-abstract. It is created with the use of brush, palette knife, and mixed media when called for. The paintings are completed in layers with dramatic strokes offset by quiet places within the painting. The atmospheric quality and depth of the painting are most important to her. She hopes the viewer will enter into the world she created on the canvas. The history and longevity of oil painting have been important to her. After discovering the buttery texture, smell, and feeling oil paint gave her as she dipped her brushes into it she has not looked back.
