About The Artwork

It's a very sweet bouquet of 2 cupcakes, one strawberry and one lime. There's also one macaron, a donut and a choux with whipped cream. I'm having fun painting cakes from different countries and creating yummy bouquets with them. The painting becomes 3 gifts in one. It's at the same time: one of a kind art piece, an accumulation of delicious cakes and a colorful bouquet. I hope it will bring joy to your house and your loved ones. I start the work by creating an abstract background made of layers of recycled papers, plastiques and acrylic paint. I also use stencils. When it's dry, I paint the beautiful cakes I found at the bakery. The sides of the canvas are painted and it's ready to hang, no frame needed unless you really want to add one.

Fleur Spolidor is a french artist born in Paris who lived in Zurich and San Francisco and recently moved to Amsterdam. Daughter of a metallurgist engineer and a Freudian psychotherapist, she enjoys reading nonsense literature and adventure novels. She earned a M.F.A degree in Art History from a french University and subsequently taught Art History and Fine Art at the same university and in private Schools of Design. In 2004 she moved to California and started a successful business, teaching art classes in french to kids and adults. Spolidor has a knack for learning new art techniques: from stained glass to virtual reality painting. While playing with different techniques, she pushes her work towards contemporary issues like the never ending need to protect women’s rights and the accelerating global warming. Her main body of work called “Alice”, depicts the different characters of Lewis Carroll’s book in modern San Francisco with a vintage flair. She paints them over layers of found materials like plastic, fabric, metal, paper in an effort to recycle and reuse instead of discarding. In her other series called “Paris Flood” Spolidor mixes images of a century ago with photos found in the news. She mixes traditional and modern, digital and analog to try to reconnect the spectator with the scene he’s looking at. When we look at an old photograph, time gives a romantic patina to the event, we forget the suffering to only see the surrealism of the scene. When Spolidor superimposes old and new images, the catastrophes take another dimension. The past becomes a witness of our limited memory and our inability to plan for long term future. Superimposition works as a revealer. As we look through the membranes of the image, we go back to the essential. Spolidor’s figurative work drifts between nonsense and satyre, between past and present, to reflect on mankind’s short memory and the recurring mistakes we keep on making.
