About the Artist
Adrienne Anbinder grew up in New York where she attended the School of Visual Arts and The Art Students League. Adrienne, a Brooklyn native, is inspired by the natural world and the often-overlooked secrets that nature holds. She is inspired by the oversized flowers of Georgia O’Keeffe and the still life paintings of the Dutch Masters.
As a child, I was mesmerized by the colorful floral images that my mother used to paint on the walls of our Brooklyn home. I didn’t realize that those fanciful flowers would eventually find their way into my bones, creating in me a deep connection to nature and an intense desire to capture its mysteries.
After I photograph natural world images, I digitally enhance them to reveal a chiaroscuro of depth and animated light to ensure that each flower’s story is lovingly unearthed. Flowers always teach me something, not only about the flower, but also about myself.
With every flower portrait I create, my goal is to tell an evocative story.
As an art-director, I helped create an in-store magazine for Kroger called, Goodness Magazine, where I produced a nationwide floral campaign, Flowers From Kroger, Just Because. During this time, my love of floral photography blossomed.
I have been photographing flowers for over ten years. My fine art is hanging in homes across the country, from Atlanta to New York to Palm Beach. My photographs, which often resemble paintings, can be seen in New York at Gallery 104 and 1stdibs Design Showroom and on websites such as Artsy, New York Arts, and Morton Contemporary Gallery. In addition, I have a permanent presence at The Chatt Hills Gallery in Serenbe, an award-winning community centered around the arts. It is located in the Chattahoochee Hills of Georgia, just outside Atlanta, where I happily live and work. My art is also exhibited through Artography Limited at AmericasMart Atlanta at the Appleman Schauben showroom, and I have licensed dozens of my abstract photographs to several different worldwide licensing companies.
Last summer, I created a collector’s edition book of flowers called FlowerStory, which features ten of my personal floral stories accompanied by over fifty unique flower portraits.
