Artist comment -
Vibrant Petals: NZ Floral Painting is an original painting that I experimented with my style. I thought a more contemporary floral piece might be nice to try.
I had to produce an exhibition under an abstract style so hence this floral painting evolved. The flowers are based off a camellia flower.
It was a rather quick piece to produce but I really felt in the flow whilst doing this painting. I love the colours together with the addition of the gold foil and the ink.
I absolutely love using gold in my more abstract/contemporary works of art. This influence stems from the artist Klimt and I just love his use of gold in all of his paintings. Furthermore my signature brings in that influence as well as a vast majority of paintings (where it allows) are signed in gold pen.
