Sylvia Marsters – Ephemeral.
Sylvia Marsters, Ephemeral. Oil on canvas, 1500x1500mm, 2019. This work is framed, shipping by arrangement.
For her most recent series of Gardenia paintings, the artist has said that she has looked to the tradition of 19th and 20th century Viennese flower painting, from Ferdinand Georg Waldmüller to Gustav Klimt. Marster’s work is exceptionally detailed. Grand cycles of life play out in glorious detail across the canvases. They are beautiful, yet pensive. Dark, moody backgrounds draw the viewer past the obvious fragility of the flowers into a void of heightened emotion, they are spaces and experiences yet to be encounteredENQUIRE
