Tulips re-imagined in apricot hues pop against a rich dark turquoise canvas in this new abstract floral by Heidi Conrod. This is one in a series of paintings created for the first exhibition at Oeno’s space in The Royal Hotel in Picton, Ontario. The compositions were inspired by Victorian botanicals and Japanese woodcuts—the gorgeous colours by the palette of a famous Japanese artist and designer. The strand of neon in bright pink draws the viewer’s eye and adds interest and depth to this lovely painting.
“My palette is intense and adds depth—the bold, matte colours were hand-mixed using rare pigments from Italy and Spain.” Heidi Conrod
Born in Montreal in 1970, Conrod attained her BSc in Biology in 1994 at the University of Ottawa. She studied painting and printmaking at the Ottawa School of Art and at the University of Ottawa. Heidi Conrod’s work is held in many Canadian galleries.
