The Wildflower Patch, oil and acrylic on canvas, 150 x 100 x 2 cm
The Wildflower Patch, a cascade of flowers dance to the tune of a gentle Spring breeze, a raw beauty, fragile, yet defiant and strong. Divine in its wildness, graceful in its beauty. The Wildflower Patch
Inspired by the abundance of wildflowers on the hillside around my home, The Wildflower Patch depicts a twisted array of wild iris and poppies. The expressionist dripped background creates a sense of movement and rhythm, drawing the viewer in and encouraging them to explore the detail within the artwork while the contrast between the realism of the flowers and the abstract expressionism of the undergrowth is striking. The chaotic, tangled drip work is reminiscent of a wild, untamed wilderness, while the delicate beauty of the flowers suggests calm and peace, creating a natural, organic feel to represent nature. Beautiful pink and violet iris set against a wild expressionist landscape. Savage and raw, delicate and graceful, the contrast is enchanting. The Wildflower Patch is ready to hang.
