Hilda Oomen : Bloom

Hilda Oomen

Opening Reception
Saturday, January 18, 2020
5–8pm

"Gardening is central to my painting. I have spent years working in gardens, both as a career and as a creative substitute for painting. Those years became the inspiration for my current work. My earlier paintings flowed directly from the experience of the Mulmer hills of Ontario; large landscapes overlaid with mosaic-like floral insets. My shift towards community gardening is mirrored in my smaller more intimate floral paintings. Painting small allows for a simplified and strong focus. For me flowers are the embodiment of life, beauty and joy!"
- Hilda Oomen
