New Submerged Garden Underwater Photography by Artist Andrea Bonfils Emerges at Solo Exhibition “Botanical Refraction”
GREENWICH, CONNECTICUT, Thursday, May 10th at 6pm – Award-winning Artist Andrea Bonfils opens her solo exhibition “Botanical Refraction”, with new captivating imagery from her underwater photography series Submerged Garden, at the Isabella Garrucho Fine Art Gallery, founded in 2016 by veteran art advisor and curator Isabella Garrucho and co-owner and manager Alex Trimper.
The “Botanical Refraction” exhibition features new underwater floral photography demonstrating the change in direction of light passing through one medium to the other. The refraction theme is also represented in Andrea’s photo montages and Nest Collection of photo sculptures: revealing birds in flight, mountains and various terrain in translucent layered panels allowing the viewer a variable perspective.
Embracing a range of mediums and pioneering photographic techniques that illustrate forms in nature, including underwater floral motifs and females to encaustic resin paintings of aspen trees in winter or wild horses, Bonfils’ interprets the essence of her subjects. Her use of kaleidoscopic colors, takes the viewer through the looking glass into an ethereal paradise.
Bonfils is proud to work with Isabella Garrucho and Alex Trimper, whom she met at an auction benefitting the Greenwich Trail Riding Association.
“Isabella contacted me with a lot of excitement, particularly for my underwater and photo montage series. Her vision along with Alex’s, the gallery director, are very compatible with mine. The concepts for large scale installations and sculpture as well as the uniqueness of my images really seemed to move them. They are well versed in what can and can't be found in the art world, and they wanted to be the first to show the Submerged Garden Series to a wider audience on several commercial platforms. Great synergy in the art world is very gratifying!”
Andrea currently resides in Darien, Connecticut. She is represented by galleries in New Mexico, California, and South Carolina. Her work can be viewed at major art fairs, in the Permanent Collection at the Museum of Encaustic Art as well as private and corporate collections worldwide.
Exhibition dates: Thursday, May 10th @6pm-9pm through June 4th
