About This Work
“I paint what I love; the objects in ‘Studio Still Life’ are quite ordinary everyday things; an amaryllis; lemons; two small tables; a monstera and canvases propped against the wall. I am interested in the ‘conversations ’going on in the painting; how the objects relate to one another. I often use the same objects in my work; looking at them from differing points of view. My work starts from observation. I work intuitively, responding to what I see and to what is on the page. This painting is acrylic with some collage; notably the red and white striped wrapping paper to add an element of fun. I will continue to paint-there is always a painting in front of me. I can’t imagine not painting.”
Painting in the modernist style, Iris works intuitively in a loosely representational and highly animated manner. She has exhibited locally and also internationally and has work included in private collections. She has been represented by Gallery on the Bay in Hamilton and has shown her work there; as well as TBA Artspace, Carnegie Gallery in Dundas ON and Dundas Valley School of Art, Dundas, ON.
