Peony Memories


original painting

acrylic and paper collage on canvas




The painting is a collaboration of artists Doris Reske and Cathrin Gressieker. In our ongoing experimental and intuitive CoLab painting process we paint on large canvases, take turns and the layering can take up to a couple of months, or even years, until a finished piece emerges and takes form. There is texture underneath and a whole underwater world – until the peonies started to blossom in June.

‘Peony Memories’ is a bold celebration of the arrival of summer and the lusciousness of life.

Doris Reske studied art and sculpture in Oldenburg and Cathrin Gressieker studied at the West Berlin University of the Arts were she went after the German reunification in late 1990s.

It is painted using quality, high pigmented and light-fast acrylic paints on a 100% cotton canvas. It is varnished with a satin UV protective coat.

The paintings are securely packaged, insured and shipped through a reputable courier to ensure they reach you safely. They are all ready to hang in the place you have chosen.
