“Why do you try to understand art? Do you try to understand the song of a bird?” – Pablo Picasso

A young painter whose canvases are full of brilliant bold colour, for Art Sunday this week. Her name is Eden Folwell. Although she paints portraits and nudes, her signature work is the expressionistic abstract, which is reminiscent of the fauves (e.g. Derain). The colours are jewel-like and intense and within the interlocking lines of geometrical shapes one may discern representational themes or maybe not.

This canvas is called “The Butterfly Effect”. More of Eden’s paintings may be found here.

Enjoy the week ahead!
