I've been fascinated by all the artists I'm following on Instagram these days who so freely share their work and brighten my day as I'm scrolling through.
I'm super grateful for their inspiration and I love how running across some of their images on Instagram gives me so much pleasure.
They have become some of my favorite people to follow. :-)
I've decided to start featuring a few here on my blog, so you can follow them too or maybe even add a piece of original art to your collection!
Today, I'm excited to share this wonderful artist I discovered there, Jean Marie Bucich.
What most impressed me about her work was the scale at which she paints these beautiful flowers. She really brings them to life, creating so much depth and detail.
At this scale, these pieces would really wake up a room! I can see a piece like this over a sofa or king sized bed.
With all our open plan houses here in Texas, we don't have many walls, but the walls we do have are huge! This is the kind of art that would make a statement and add some real life and color to a home.
You can really see the scale and detail of her work here. Aren't the colors amazing?
Jean Marie Bucich is professionally trained and featured at Chrysallis Gallery in Southampton.
With a full scholarship and a BFA, 1991 from The Cooper Union for the Advancement of Science and Art in New York City, Jean Marie had the privilege of studying under the instruction of professors such as Jack Whitten, Patricia Colville and Sue Fergusson-Gussow, as well as extensive study of Old Master painting techniques under the instruction of Gian Berto Vanni. Jean Marie has travelled through Italy and France with detailed notes in hand from her studies of Renaissance Art and High Renaissance Art, as well as Baroque Art and Architecture with art historian and author, Professor Dale Harris.
In 2010, Jean Marie won First Place for Oil Painting in the Bergen County Cultural Affairs 46th Annual Art Exhibit. While raising a family, Jean Marie’s works have been sold to private collectors through the interior design industry and commissions, as well as local and international art exhibits.
“My painting technique involves the Old Master processes of imprimatura and the layering of glazes, in combination with blending opaque brushstroke, creating a ‘push and pull’ of depth and light. My goal is to focus on my interest in the subject matter, while bringing forward a contemporary presence through concept and scale.” – Jean Marie
