The Flower Family - Art


The Flower Family is a colorful piece in primary colors that depicts a group of tall, elegant flowers set against a stark white background. Blues and reds dominate the painting’s color scheme, and the juxtaposition of these two primary colors is quite striking. The two colors blur at the edges at certain points in this painting, while at others the demarcation between blue and red is sharp and clear. These primary color flowers are beautiful and evocative, an image of natural beauty in a bare, abstract setting.

The family of flowers in this painting are linked by common characteristics, yet maintain a significant level of individuality, much like members of a human family. Just as family members are made up of shared genetic elements, all four of these beautiful flowers are composed of the same colors. Yet they maintain individuality, and each flower is painting in different configurations of red and blue. The color red dominates some flowers, while others are composed primarily of blue. This co-existence of linked family traits and individuality reflects the nature of family in general, making The Flower Family a thought-provoking and worthwhile piece.
