Out of the serie: Conservatory 2020-2022

During the recent period, Weidenbaum painted a series of works under the heading ‘Conservatory’. Paintings of a piece of protected nature. Plants in a conservatory looking, like the painter, for the light. An old grape greenhouse in Overijse or the botanical gardens in Liège are the place of inspiration. The contrasts between the high whites and the deep blacks in this series are a direct link with the way of painting that Gustave Courbet used in his snow landscapes. The conflict between culture and nature has never played such a high game. This has brought us back to romanticism, says Weidenbaum about this series of paintings.
