On the last day of a subsequent visit to Paris, friends bought Kirsten a huge bunch offlowers called ‘Ranunculus’. The the colours and shapes were so fabulous and varied, each flower wildly different from the last.
On returning to my studio Kirsten painted French Flower Garden, the first of her flower garden paintings. The result was fantastical, exotic, reminiscent of Indian miniatures. She added a collection of tiny birds, nesting and hiding on the stems and the branches and making the flowers seem all the more bizarre and strange.Image size 106cm x 41cm (126cm x 61cm inc. mount)Price mounted £295Price framed £495
About Kirsten Jones
Kirsten is inspired by memories and things, patterns and places; the treasures we collect throughout lifeand their remembered or imagined histories. Tiny details are observed and imagined, combined and layered within each piece, a story waiting to be read and interpreted by the viewer. Every piece tells a story and the narrative can be traced through the text, maps, stamps and foundfragments. A full-time Artist, originally trained in Newcastle Upon Tyne, Kirsten has a studio in Henley on Thames and exhibits her work in galleries throughout the U.K.
