First edition limited to 33 signed and numbered copies. This book contains 6 original tipped-in samples of marbled water lilies produced by Nedim Sönmez.
"Water-lilies are another prominent subject. Nedim Sönmez alludes openly to Monets paintings, which he has seen as originals. He approaches this difficult motif in large-scale compositions. Yet unlike Monets paintings, his flower pieces are shaped by patterns. They are works of restrained vigour and tenderness. Intricately designed areas of water contrast with large blossoms that have a certain staged looked. Monets impression of nature served as the point of departure for his multiply reflected representation. Ebru, the marbling art employed here, heightens the artistic challenge posed by Monets water-lilies by virtue of its limited repertoire of patterns and the difficult process involved in creating form. But here as well, Nedim Sönmez proves a master of his art."
