About The Exhibition

Punctuated Evolution presents a combination of photorealistic paintings and abstract drawings by New Orleans-based artist Ida Floreak. Bones, leaves, insects and other artifacts of the natural world are carefully rendered and composed on her canvases to create poetic studies of the beauty inherent in the natural world. Her recent series of non-representational drawings rely more on instinct than observation. Moving between controlled, realistic painting and loose, abstract drawing, Floreak is exploring artistic relationships between the scientific and mystical, knowledge and intuition. Floreak holds a BFA from the Rhode Island School of Design where she studied painting and scientific illustration.
