Quote from original article –
As an artist who is obsessed with the beauty and the form of flowers, I paint every object as a self-projection. During the new Era, time slows down for every individual to focus further on the connection to mother nature and the surrounding around us.
I started a special series called ‘The Lockdown Diary’ since the pandemic- a special isolation diary that I wrote with my paintbrushes. It is an extension of my ongoing Contemporary floral series, featuring native flowers we love and common flowers we know.
To experience the changing of the seasons and to present moments in the new normal, it has become a routine of mine to paint the first bloom in my surrounding during its flowering season. Most of my inspiration comes from my observation of the natural world. I use close observation to try to capture as much detail as possible.
Through my paintings I see flowers as representing life, each different flower and object have their significant meaning and symbolism. Flowers represent us as humans, Vases as the body carrying our soul and physical body, protecting us as a shield in a natural order. In one of my large-scale pieces, which was completed during the lockdown, the weaving basket stands for connections- the bounding between families, friends, all the people around us. Even if we are apart, everyone is still being linked together as a whole, stronger together. Every passenger in our life, every stranger who is meant to cross our path for a reason, plays an irreplaceable role in this life-time story.
You may see the work as a documentary of the special time that we came through. Our body kept us strong, alive, and healed, the heroes who keep the world moving. It is also a reminder that as the flowers are in full bloom, this is our time to be alive. Flowers always bloom in their own time without competing with other flowers. May we all bloom in our best season.
