About the Art
What the artist saysWatercolor allows to mix precise marks, and stains diffusing the pigments at random on paper. It opens up to an ideal spontaneity to mark time and memory. Water and paper allow you to open up to luck, as in life. My works are on paper like a book, and tell a story.
Why we like itFleur’s work feels random and spontaneous, though influenced by patterns found in science and nature.
Where we hang itThis piece is calming in its abstraction. Hang it anywhere you might want a contemplative moment.
About the Artist
Fleur ThesmarAfter graduating from Ecole Polytechnique and Imperial College, Fleur Thesmar worked 20 years in France in the high tech industry. Her arrival in the United States in 2015 triggered an ancient passion -- painting -- which she explored through classes in the Museum of Fine Arts studio art program. Since then, she has exhibited juried shows in the U.S. and around the world, working primarily in watercolor. She hopes to share her intense emotions and the change of perspective she has shaped through her migration to the United States.

“I include in my paintings impressions of mathematical structures, which I complete with iterations of motifs representing the echoes and the harmony of the world.”
