More from the gallery:

Sayers takes the spirit of Monet to a new dimension — a new part of the world, a new continent, Australia! — where landscape is untamed and unpredictable, where colors are wild and aggressive, where water and sky bond together in solid unity, so nobody knows where one ends and the other starts.

Claire Sayers’s paintings are true tapestries. Her proprietary mixed-media on canvas, in her hands, turns into tangible ripples of water, stems of flowers, leaves, weeds, and — beyond gorgeous — buds of water lilies, ready to burst into the flower . . . we can only imagine. Claire Sayers is a remarkably unique and unmistakably Australian! Nevertheless, her large, generous, energetic works fit beautifully into the Florida environment. We welcome Claire to Florida and expect more and more fascinating creations, inspired by Monet and Australia.
