DELPHINE PELLER

Artist Statement

My paintings are texture rich and infused with color built from layers within the main composition. My paintings are often inspired by nature and feature organic shapes, intense colors, with interplay of light and shadow. Art is the opportunity to capture and celebrate what I see as beautiful in the world.   Through de-constructive and building processes each canvas becomes its own story.  My goal is for the viewer to contemplate the nuances and unique qualities of the moment. Layers, depth, and components are to be appreciated, but not to define the whole image. The common thread for my work is the creativity joining representational, raw, and abstract elements. 

 

Bio

Delphine has always been creative; whether it was decorating a room, volunteering to help out with school crafts, or just doodling on a rainy day.  However, it was not until Delphine was faced with her diagnosis of the chronic illness Lupus in 1992 that she began to paint for herself.  Art has been a big part of her life ever since and she enjoys acrylic, collage, and mixed media painting. 

 

She has been selling and doing commission work for 18 years.  Delphine is an active volunteer in the art community. She works with the Wake Forest Guild of Artists and currently serves on the Wake Forest Public Arts Commission.
