Lynn Geesaman's landscapes and gardenscapes have a distinctive, shimmering style. The detail in her photographs form the base of the images, but it is the soft, unfocused surface that reminds the viewer of Impressionist painting. This photograph was taken in one of the artist's favorite parks, Parc de Sceaux, just south of Paris.
She describes the scene this way: "the pure geometry of the seventeenth-century French park: a haze of yellow buds softens the ends of the branches, an effect that enhances an otherwise severe object." This Digital C-Print is signed by the artist.
Lynn Geesaman (born in Cleveland, 1938) has exhibited widely in museums and galleries throughout the U.S. and Europe, including Bibliothéque Nationale de France, Paris; The American Cultural Center, Brussels; The Minneapolis Institute of Arts; and the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts, Richmond. She has received many honors, including the Minnesota State Arts Board Fellowship and the Arts Midwest/NEA Regional Visual Arts Fellowship Award.
