All the wonderful things in life begin in a simple moment and last an eternity.If you are familiar with my work, you may already know every year I spent several months studying one single object in my signature series – Bloom like flowers. Sometimes a single artwork can take over 6 months to complete depends on the size and how detailed it was. In this signature series of mine, flowers as the object represent life itself to me.
Our own will to be alive, and the way we want to be alive. While I carefully paint these tiny flower petals, or built up those fine leaves’ vines, it is like the way we try to figure out those uncertainty, furthermore, to be able to be closer to the truth a little bit more. I started this particular artwork around October 2020 and it had been staying on my easel for several months. If you look close enough, each tiny petal was built up by multiple layers. The process wasn’t an easy task but It’s a challenge that I always enjoyed.
It’s been a really long journey. I spent countless days studying those intricate details, sunny days and rainy days.
This new variety of rose – Frutteto, is a light pink rose with light green exterior petals.
The colour pink is often associated with appreciation, perfection and happiness. Pink elicits feelings of warmth, femininity, and love.
Colours also have a psychological influence. From all the colours, green symbolizes nature and the natural world. It is often thought to represent tranquillity, good luck, and health.
As for white, for me, white has all the possibilities.
Bridal white, white canvas, a page of blank diary, and all the different colours enchanted on pure white petals with sunlight dance on it.
The colour white symbolizing simplicity, a fresh start or a new beginning.
I remember once my collector asked me a specific question on my solo exhibition years ago – What is the most difficult flower that you’ve ever paint?
I thought for a while and answered honestly – Personally I think white flowers are the most difficult object to paint, because colours changed under the light. White flowers are not just in white. It is also one of the reasons I love about it. Precision and a lot of practice are needed to depict delicate details.
This artwork is inspired by an amazing rose bouquet that I spotted in the local market. Completed in Melbourne, Victoria, 2021 – The year of a new beginning.
