The Violence of Flowers

Yesterday I took 5 new pieces down to Inkd gallery and talked about some of the new work.  It was good to air the new pieces as there was a slight change in direction and the work was starting to focus solely on floral forms.  I have recently received good feedback from some purely floral works, poppy and undergrowth especially, and I think it is this that has given me the impotus to move into this project without any portrtraiture or human elements both with more confidence and a renewed sense of energy.

It was surprising to react in such a strong way to what are essentially to me study drawings of wild flowers that were picked from the grounds of the studio at Norlington Road, but the reaction has reintroduced a vigorous line and mark making to my drawing that I felt had been missing from the initial pieces I made recently exploring bees… I learnt that sometimes it is good to follow this impulse and not tobe stubborn about the route that the work takes.

below are a few images of detail from the works which include partial studies of thistles roses and other wild flowers … I will be posting completed images of the work fairly soon when I have an idea how the project will develop.  For now I can only say that these pieces are intense emotional responses to the plants and floral forms in front of me, hope you enjoy them as much as I did making them – Carne #gallery-948-1 { margin: auto; } #gallery-948-1 .gallery-item { float: left; margin-top: 10px; text-align: center; width: 33%; } #gallery-948-1 img { border: 2px solid #cfcfcf; } #gallery-948-1 .gallery-caption { margin-left: 0; } /* see gallery_shortcode() in wp-includes/media.php */
