Sweet Wild Rose, oil on canvas, 120 x 120 x 3 cm
Sweet Wild Rose, an unkempt beauty. The sweetest fragrance and the softest petals. Surrounded by thorns and twisted long branches. The Briar Rose signifies the beauty of the nature and the perfection of creation. To thrive in the harshest conditions, to survive on what nature provides. The Briar Rose inspires me, I want to be as strong and defiant as that Sweet Wild Rose.
I wanted to create a wildness and a naivety which suggests the purity of nature. Using dripped and thrown paint to suggest movement and strong textured oil paint to define shape, Sweet Wild Rose is eye catching and beautiful. Strong flashes of colour sit juxtaposed to pale pink and white tones while gold flashes of paint add depth and catch light. Sweet Wild Rose is ready to hang
