"The process of loading the brush with deeply saturated color and changing the stark white paper is satisfying and meditative. The Pool series are meant to be meditative for the viewer as well. With all of life's agitations, art should be intriquing and beautiful as well as create a sense of calm - that's what I'm going for with my art".
Idoline in front of her "pools" painting at Mecox GardensThe pool series is a collection of watercolors with sentiments of the sea. Each watercolor painting captures the essence of water in orbs or droplets painted in layers of varying colors from blue and plum to pink and brown. It is at once literal, yet at the same time abstract.
"this collection and body of work celebrates the freedom and fluidity of mixed-media collage and the freshness and vibrancy of watercolor" dragonflies
About Mecox Gardens
Mecox is one of my favorite shops for furniture and accessories, and it is also a great place to shop with clients because the space is put together beautifully. They have locations througout New York City, Southampton, East Hampton, Los Angeles, Chicago and Palm Beach, Florida. They manage to weave mid century furnishings with vintage, antiques and modern designs all stylized together producing a casual yet sophisticated feel. Each store has it's own flavor, and my two favorite shops are Palm Beach and East Hampton for their distinct nautical flair. Idoline's clean lines and clear colors blend well with the aesthetic.
