Firebird TutuLenore Gimpert is a 1997 graduate of the Center for creative studies, and received both her MA and MFA from Wayne State University. She has a strong love of history, particularly the Greek Hellenistic, Baroque and Rococo periods. The romance of these periods is portrayed in her paintings and drawings as we view the old and classical through her contemporary eye. Her work constantly is metamorphosed from classical statues, to wrought iron gates, to a combination of statues and gates or furniture details to corsets. She paints very different subjects, from varied times, with consistent elements of curves, femininity and romance. In her art she uses various materials and techniques to fuse the old and new. She emphasizes form over color. Her sparing use of color serves as a signature accent, to give her work an elegant ancient feeling.
