Event description

Description

Stephanie Têtu is a Canadian artist that burst on to the Sydney art-scene with her majestic oil paintings of flora. Têtu's latest body of work Parade draws inspiration from her experience in the fashion industry, as both a model and makeup artist. She carefully considers composition and lighting to create a sense of drama as well as delicacy. Like fashion models on a runway her flowers emanate power and sensuality.

Exhibition dates: 8 - 25 November 2017
Opening: Wednesday 8 November 2017, 6 - 8pm

Stephanie Têtu on her work:

“With this latest body of work, I have sought to create mysterious creatures, both uncompromising and charismatic. I am channeling the top models of the 80’s, but also the modern cult of beauty. I want my flowers to look like those front row cool influencers.

I’m often asked why I paint flowers as a subject, as they are so feminine and traditional. I find flowers fascinating. Like faces, they are forever changing; no two the same. I love their mathematical complexities, but also their fluidity. They are both technically challenging and forgiving.

Flowers are sexy and beautiful. They wilt and degenerate, as do we, thus a reminder of the fleeting nature of life."

Parade showcases Stephanie Têtu's incredible eye for detail and composition. It is a seductive body of work that demonstrates her ability to closely capture the ephemeral beauty and fragility of flowers.

Parade opens on Wednesday 8 November 2017, 6 - 8pm, and runs until Saturday 25 November 2017.
