I would like to share the concept behind this piece if you have a bit of time.
I started this artwork around February. It’s been a long journey, sunny days and rainy days. Long working hours required determination and faith to be achieved. I spent almost every day studying those intricate compositions and fine details. The process wasn’t an easy task but It’s a challenge that I enjoyed, and I happy to say I finally have it completed in May.
By the time I have this artwork completed, I decided to name this artwork - A Life Time Story, which is an extension from my previous award-winning artwork – A Life Time Journey, A Lifetime blessing, and A Life Time Love.
In this particular painting, the delicate, exotic orchid represents love, luxury, beauty, and strength. In ancient Greece, orchids were associated with virility. Pink roses are symbolic of gratitude and appreciation.
Flowers represent us as humans, the wood tray and vases as the body carrying our soul and physical body, protecting us as a shield in a natural order.
The weaving basket stands for connections, the connection between families, friends, all the people around us. Even if you are apart, everyone is still being linked together as a whole, stronger together. Every passenger in our life, every stranger, people who are meant to cross our path for a reason, plays an irreplaceable role in this lifetime long story.
This artwork is inspired by a graceful floral arrangement that I spotted in the local nursery. However, the side story- If you look close enough, you may notice from the details that there is something different from my usual approach.
In fact, these gorgeous blooms were referenced from artificial/ Man-made flowers. Due to the restriction in the covid era, that was somehow the best that I could get at that time.
I decided to be true to myself and to the time we live in, so I painted those as it is, kept the real details and let the viewer know the true story behind the scene.
Because we are all part of this story, and the story goes on. We write our story individually, meanwhiles, together as a whole. It is also a reminder of the special time that we come through. Our body kept us strong, alive, and healed, the heroes who keep the world moving.
I sincerely hope you enjoy this artwork.
