Field of Bloom Description
Field of Blooms is the pillar of Hanson's most recent Romance in Bloom collection. It measures 13-feet wide and when viewed in person leaves most slack-jawed.
Hanson’s use of color pits striking purples against apple greens and swirls of cherry reds; nary a color of the rainbow goes missing from the mix. Somehow it appears realistic, though clearly breaching into the realm of expressionism. This noted contemporary impressionist has coined the term “open-impressionism” to describe her work.
Collectors and fans often immediately associate the petite artist to the likes of Monet, Cezanne, William Wendt, and most frequently van Gogh, whose swirling patterns and contrasting colors seem to have set the precedent for Hanson’s unbridled representations of nature.
ERIN HANSON is a life-long painter, beginning her study of oils as a young child. Her passion for natural beauty is seen in her work as she transforms vistas familiar and rare into stunning interpretations of bold color, playful rhythms and raw emotional impact. Her frequent forays into National Parks and other recesses of nature include backpacking expeditions, rock climbing, and photo safaris. Hanson's unique painting style has become known as Open Impressionism, with hundreds of collectors eagerly anticipating her work. As an iconic, driving force in the rebirth of contemporary impressionism, Hanson is quickly recognized as a prolific, modern master.
