Deborah Bigeleisen is an American contemporary artist widely known for her floral paintings, always using a single image of a flower as her inspiration. Her technique is rooted in the labor-intensive practices of the Dutch master painters. She exclusively paints in oils and uses mediums at different viscosities. Whether creating representational images or non-objective ones, her focus is always on the choreography of the movement, the organization of the space, the subtlety in the tonal transitions, and the intricacy of the brushwork.
