Painting the Roses Red (New American F(L)AG)

Pittura, Figura umana, Piante, Politico/Sociale, Tecnica mista, 244x183cm
Oil on canvas, and New and Recycled hand-painted (originally white) silk flowers on board. I used primarily recycled/rescued white silk flowers with a history of their own to build an iconic arrangement upon which the viewer can cast their own interpretations and expectations.

Generally speaking, flowers in fine art raise more questions than they answer. Though their visual appeal is straightforward, the interpretation of their bewildering array of meaning is complicated, and often contradictory. The flower can function as a vehicle for contemplating concepts of sex, decay, gender politics, our environment, decadence, ceremony, and the mutability of life, love and death.

Great metaphore: the flower contemplating the world, the life and the death parallel to red and lines: genial. Congratulations Kim!
