Why imitate reality when you can imagine a new one?

Here the most powerful resources of the artist – creativity, imagination and reinvention – have been harnessed. Such a delicate combination has been achieved: the celebration of the common things of everyday life without imitation. Instead, we have ‘visual music’, composed using the formal artistic elements of pattern, harmony, colour, and rhythm.

In the foreground of this enchanting artwork, we see 2 red poppies in a vase, situated around a jug, an onion and 3 stones. What is captivating is the tribal patterns on the objects, and the striking colour palette comprising of black, white and purple being used.

With these objects dominating the artwork, what can be quite missable to the eye is the unique location where this scene is taking place – the desert! In the background, the sun is glowing in the clear blue sky, watching over the vast land and sand dunes beneath it.

This charming oil on board is in excellent vintage condition, and comes in a beautifully carved wooden frame.
