“Inspired by nature, I became interested in the architectural detail of flowers, their vibrant color and
their moment in time. In my oil paintings, the petals and leaves play within the confines of the painting’s
edges, allowing the viewer a peek into the serenity of the garden. These over-scaled floral portraits draw
the viewer into the detail of each flower’s anatomy. Chiaroscuro is juxtaposed against the transparency
of the flower, aglow with life. In my new collection of paintings, the flowers emerge as self-aware,
persuading the viewer to take part in their role in time and in nature.” – Jean Marie Bucich©2019
“Jean Marie’s paintings are vivid depictions of nature’s works of art. Freshly frozen on canvas, her oil
palette is transformed into bold silhouettes in a living texture of floral majesty. The fine detail of her
paintings leap off the canvas with intensity, and her color progression captures nature’s hues into
brilliant focus. Jean Marie’s paintings have movement and a gifted clarity that offers anyone caught in
their gaze a deep connection with nature that stimulates the senses.” – April R. Simanoff, Life Tribute
