The latest art story born in Antoinette’s studio, Iris is a darker evolution of her previous floral motifs. These new works plunge viewers into the inky depths of nature and draw out a taste of the extra-terrestrial that’s present right here on Earth.  

Struck with inspiration in early February, Antoinette returned to her studio with the image of a moody, uniquely shaped flower in her mind, working feverishly to capture it on a canvas. Bruised shades of blue, purple and black, collaged layers and spilled ink slowly took shape into the dark, organic form of an iris.
