Imagine a friend has brought you a bunch of flowers and you’ve put them in a jug displayed on your dining room table. You’re having breakfast at your table the next morning, admiring the flowers. You observe the patterns, colours, edges and lines of the little flowers. You begin to notice the natural rhythm within this visual picture – the different heights and shapes of the flowers and leaves and their stems form a sweet harmonious composition.
It is this very composition that the artist of this painting has explored. The artist has observed the formal elements of the jug of flowers, i.e. shape, line, form and colour, and has enhanced them by deliberately flattening and bringing them parallel to the picture surface, deployed on a table top that has been similarly brought up and forward by 90 degrees to align them with the canvas plane.
Here we have art that accepts life’s visual and tactile pleasures, but represents them using the resources of the painter – colour and form, visual rhythm and rhyme.
This lovely oil on board is in excellent vintage condition. The complementary vintage effect frame as seen in the photos is included with the painting.
