This painting is part of a series of works where I have been exploring the key elements of artistic expression.
Shape, line, colour, form, value, space, and texture are the seven core elements of art. They often overlap and inform one another.
In this painting my key objective was to explore the visual effects of overlapping geometric square and rectangular outer shapes filled with curved shapes, balanced against plain square shapes. The painting was nature inspired, hence the title – pink petals, fluorescent green stems and bright orange flowers appear in abstract form applied to the canvas in thin layers of acrylic inks.
