Bobbie Burgers’ explosive painterly bouquets are bursting with color and texture. Her abstracted interpretation of the classic still life technique employs a modern and feminine aesthetic. There is an essence of impressionism, similar to the gardens captured by Monet or Van Gogh’s sunflowers, an influence that is perhaps to be expected from her studies in Aix-en-Provence,
Her expressive and abstract botanical manifestations beautifully capture the life-stages of flora, the wilted petals as striking as the blooming ones.
Dorota Kozinska, an art critic perfectly summarizes Burgers’ floral masterpieces:
Sweeping brushstrokes and vivid color evoke a very tangible experience for the viewer. Drips of paint give the blooms a gorgeous sense of disarray, an essence of overgrowth or chaos. This reckless narrative of beauty in turn draws the viewer in to not only a visual experience, but also an emotional one.
