Greta Corens: Irises and Roses Exhibit

Greta Corens: Irises and Roses at The Field Gallery in Peekskill, NY
The Field Gallery is delighted to present the brilliant watercolors of artist and designer Greta Corens in Irises and Roses, a show which gloriously illustrates her master botanicals, rich with careful nuance and majestic elegance. Her flowers invite you to lean closer, the images calling you to revel as the magnificent, full bloom renderings couple with your own fragrant memories. Corens found the nurturing quality of beauty, art, and nobility in Dutch Baroque floral paintings during her early years at boarding school in Belgium, and first studied at the St. Lucas Architectural Institute in Brussels. After a move to New York City, Corens became a sought after fashion designer, while high demand for her portrait paintings was decisive in her recognition as an artist. After returning to Belgium to study at the Antwerp Royal Academy of Art, Corens explains, “I had an intimate rediscovery of the effects of flowers on my psyche that became a major inspiration in my paintings.” She has since returned to New York where many prestigious galleries on the East Coast showcased her work, including the National Art Club Gallery (for the Catherine Lorillard Wolfe Art Club) in NYC, and the Bendheim Gallery and the Flinn Gallery, both in Greenwich, CT. Corens has received several awards and prizes from online gallery exhibits, such as the and Her singular vision: capturing graceful transcendence into the natural world.
