Swirling Florals: Art by Gwenda Branjerdporn
Today’s featured artist, Gwenda Branjerdporn, is a painter and media artist who specializes in swirling florals of pastels, paint and watercolour. Gwenda tends to use highly saturated, cool colours in her works, creating beautiful landscapes of teal and pink hues.
I like the way that Gwenda seems to play with the stylistic aspects of her work, never settling for one particular way of working. She seems to select the ideal style - be that ethereal and slightly abstracted, or graphic and heavily outlined – for each work and each subject.
Living in Brisbane, Australia, Gwenda’s practice has evolved out of a desire to pay respect and homage to nature, plants and trees. This is clear throughout the artist’s packed online portfolio, in which works often focus on a single flower, bird or plant, granting it almost iconic status.
