Wild Rose, oil and enamel on canvas, 170 x 110 x 3 cm
A Wild Rose, an unkempt beauty. The sweetest fragrance and the softest petals. Surrounded by thorns and twisted long branches. The Wild Rose signifies the beauty of the world untouched and the perfection of creation. To thrive in the harshest conditions, to survive on what nature provides. The Wild Rose inspires me, I want to be as strong and defiant as that sweet untamed rose.
I wanted to create a wildness and a naivety which suggests the purity of nature. Using dripped and thrown paint to suggests movement and strong textured oil paint to define shape, 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. Wild Rose is ready to hang
