Eveline Henner
The Themes
"  It is with brilliant acrylic colors that Eveline Henner brings her impressions on to canvas.  The realistic
world is her domain:  Flowers, butterflies, landscapes, seascapes, cities  - these are the subjects she
loves.  Her work reflects the lucidity and transparency of colors experienced both in the Mediterranean
and in the special light characteristic for Maine's coastal regions.  Her paintings are conveying both
affection for nature's creativity and fascination for the symbols of our civilization."
Many of the artist's paintings reflect her fascination
for F
LOWERS,  often interpreted as blossoms in
macroscopic size.
One of her favorites are depictions of blooming
plants in the seclusion of
 a CONSERVATORY,
a GREENHOUSE or a screened garden area.
Especially representative of the artist's dealing with
form and movement are her
BUTTERFLY paintings.
Flowers are also dominant in her STILL LIFE
works, harmoniously arranged in baskets or
in vases showing vividly the refracting light.
Remarkably also the artist's cubist interplay of
form, color  and light in her
FIGURATIVE works.
Often MUSICAL perceptions are underlying
inspirations for her creativity at the easel
Among Eveline Henner's depictions of landscapes, her
paintings with impressions from travels to
NEAR
EASTERN
countries, are typical examples of her specific
way of abstracting  in a cubist style.
In a somewhat contrast to the artist's attraction to a
southern atmosphere, her depictions of sunlit snow
covered
ALPINE LANDSCAPES impart in an im-
pressive way the feeling of a harsh winter climate
Living in New England in MAINE'S COASTAL REGIONS gets
her inspired bringing her impressions of rocky shore sceneries,
of landings, boats and
Lighthouses on canvas.
Eveline Henner's unique way of transforming a
perception in an interplay of form, color, light and
movement produces impressive sceneries with
SAILBOATS interacting with wind and water.
A recurring theme throughout the artist's career
are
URBAN SCENERIES, be it an impression of
a harbor's dock installations, of coastal towns in
the Mediterranean or of a New York city skyline
Paintings out of the sphere of VINEYARD AND WINE  
emerge of the artist's dealing with given themes for  
the creation of artistic wine label designs.
