Claire Milah Libin 
Artist Statement & Biography 
Flowers are my muses. Their inherent beauty, mystery, and impermanence inspire me. The reverse on glass indigo paintings attempt to render the luminosity that re ects the otherworldliness of owers. My recent watercolors + ink on paper were done swiftly, hoping to mirror the joy, secrecy, and magic of photosynthesis. Painting two or three flowers together creates a relationship that I find captivating. Having grown up in Manhattan, Springs, and now living in Tesuque, New Mexico, I am also inspired by light and darkness, from the ocean to the mountain desert, and how it lands on and around my 
owers.

In order to create her reverse oil paintings on glass, Libin makes each painting beginning from the foreground and continuing to the background, essentially working backwards. The paintings are viewed from the front of the glass. 
 

The paintings range from $600 -$2500
