“Inspired by nature, I became interested in the architectural detail of flowers, their vibrant color and their moment in time. In my oil paintings, the petals and leaves play within the confines of the painting’s edges, allowing the viewer a peek into the serenity of the garden. These over-scaled floral portraits draw the viewer into the detail of each flower’s anatomy. Chiaroscuro is juxtaposed against the transparency of the flower, aglow with life. In my new collection of paintings, the flowers emerge as self-aware, persuading the viewer to take part in their role in time and in nature.” – Jean Marie Bucich©2018

“Jean Marie’s paintings are vivid depictions of nature’s works of art. Freshly frozen on canvas, her oil palette is transformed into bold silhouettes in a living texture of floral majesty. The fine detail of her paintings leap off the canvas, with an intensity that appears to be Heaven sent, and her color progression captures nature’s subtle hues into brilliant focus. Jean Marie’s paintings have movement and a gifted clarity that offers anyone caught in their gaze a deep connection with nature that stimulates the senses.” – April R. Simanoff, Life Tribute Specialist
