Palm Tree Grove

Acrylic on Board

81cm x 161cm x 4.5 cm

Palm Tree Grove by Susanne Bianchi.  A contemporary botanical image.  We have a grove of Palm Trees in our back yard.  They provide wonderful shade and privacy as well as being a safe environment for native habitat.  It houses lizards and other creatures and birds who love to gather in the palm fronds. They love to eat the berries when the trees are in fruit.

This piece was painted on eight individual 40x40cm cradled boards. I painted the pieces in such a way that the whole 8 boards when framed together make a large picture of a Palm Tree Grove; yet each 40 x 40 board is a painting in its own right.

Each individual painting highlights a more personal closer view of the individual parts that make up the whole. Lizards, birds, coconuts, fruit, palm fronds. I particularly love the growth rings of the trees and their wonderful textured trunks with beautiful algae.

About the Artist

A contemporary figurative artist, Susanne is self-taught.  Her art articulates her experiences with colour and shape, always with an unquestionable Australian ambience.

Since the arrival of abstract art, the term figurative has been used to refer to any form of modern art that retains references to the real world and has been particularly used to refer to artists that retain aspects of the real world as their subject matter. Susanne enjoys using the human figure and placing it in its own natural space.
When painting in the Contemporary Figurative style her aim is to encourage the viewer establish their own understanding of her work, to look at the world in a way that they may not normally see it and to let their imagination run wild.
One of her inspirations is Picasso, who after about 1920, is the great exemplar of modern figurative painting.

‘My aim is to encourage the viewer establish their own understanding of my work, to look at the world in a way they may not normally see it and to let their imagination run wild.’
