The Parts of Me I Love to See, is a collection of paintings by Debra Shapiro, exploring the relationship between the body and nature. What first appear to be beautiful images of flowers in exquisite colour, but on closer inspection suggestions of the human female form emerge delicately from the folds of petals, or luscious woodland flowers creating a dreamy and meditative experience for the viewer.
The female elements suggest fashion and beauty and hint at fashion and social façade and the real person within.
The paintings also work in their own right as luscious colour fields inspired from the botanical world.
For lovers of flowers, beauty, fashion and art, The Parts of Me I Love To See, is not to be missed.
Let the beauty of nature ~ illuminate you!
About The Painter:
Debra is Canadian born and lives in Singapore. She studied at Lasalle College of the Arts earning a Bachelor of Honours Degree in Fine Art.
Growing up in Canada has enamoured me with the beauty of the colours, smells and sparkles of the four seasons. I remember walking home from school and seeing a single White Trillium, a protected flower in Ontario. It stood alone and was entirely lit by the stream of light through the trees. As a child, the light shining on the flower seemed to be larger than life, making the white flower glow in its own perfection. Maybe, because I was young the light seemed so big. But, it wasn’t just what I could see, it was what I felt - the light illuminated onto the flower~ protected, pure and vast, as it stood alone, sublime in it’s entirety.
Since that day, I’ve enjoyed the pursuit of capturing the sublime, wonder of nature in my art. Over the years this has evolved to where I am today, combining my admiration and respect for nature and it’s feminine beauty.
