Florals, the solo exhibition of NYC-based artist Sylvie Covey, features the artist’s recent paintings of flowers and botanical specifics created in 2022. From her farmhouse in upstate New York, in 2022 Sylvie painted large monotypes of flowers with watercolor pigments on paper during Spring and Summer. She observed myriads of botanical species in the gardens and fields around her. Her paintings and colors conveyed different moods and emotions, rather than a specific description. Later, some paintings were digitally enhanced or combined with one another, some were left alone. After completion, the images were outputted with Dye Sublimation on high-quality ChromaLuxe aluminum panels.
