Adrienne Anbinder grew up in New York where she attended the School of Visual Arts and The Art Students League. Adrienne, a Brooklyn native, is inspired by the natural world and the secrets that nature holds. She is inspired by the oversized flowers of Georgia O’Keeffe, the still-life paintings of the Dutch Masters, ancient myths, and the unseen world.
As a child, I was mesmerized by the colorful floral images that my mother used to paint on the walls of our Brooklyn home. I didn’t realize that those fanciful images would eventually find their way into my bones. With every image I create, my goal is to tell an evocative story. Every flower, every object, has a story hidden within. I believe that unearthing its secrets is key to creating provocative imagery. As an art director, I helped create an in-store magazine for Kroger called Goodness Magazine, where I produced a nationwide floral campaign, Flowers From Kroger, Just Because. During this time, my love of floral photography bloomed. My fascination with flowers then blossomed into storytelling and creating imaginative, abstract art. My fine art is hanging in homes across the country, from Atlanta to New York to Palm Beach. My photographs, which often resemble paintings, have been seen in New York at Gallery 104, and 1stdibs Design Showroom, and on websites such as New York Arts and Artography Limited. I also have a permanent presence at The Chatt Hills Gallery in Serenbe, an award-winning community centered around the arts. It is located in the Chattahoochee Hills of Georgia, just outside Atlanta where I happily live and work. I have licensed dozens of my abstract photographs to several worldwide licensing companies.
“Anbinder’s flowers mystically emerge as if lifting off the page, fully and sensuously beckoning the viewer.” - Debbie Morton, Morton Contemporary Gallery
Last summer, I created a fine art collector’s edition book of flowers called FlowerStory which features ten of my personal floral stories accompanied by over fifty unique flower portraits. Only fifteen high-end, hand-bound, silk-covered books have been produced. Several of my opulent books have been purchased by enthusiastic art collectors.
