Flowers

My chosen theme for this exhibition is ‘flowers’. This falls under the category of Flora and Fauna, but I have chosen to incorporate more of the Flora side as the beauty of flowers have always pleased, therefore, it is my chosen theme. I have chosen this artwork to represent my exhibition because it shows a variety of colours and techniques that are involved in my theme. This artwork is, generally speaking, a bouquet of flowers placed in a vase. However, the damp-looking background gives of a traditional and old vibe. I think this artwork perfectly represents my exhibition because there are many types and forms of artworks in my exhibition. Some of the artworks within the exhibition are bright, colourful and modern, whereas others are traditional paintings and sculptures. This artwork conveys both those themes, therefore, I have especially chosen the artwork to represent my theme.This artwork shows the modern side of my exhibition through the bouquet of flowers situated in the vase. It is modern because nowadays, any artist could plainly paint a vase of flowers. This artwork shows the traditional side of my exhibition through the brush strokes. The brush strokes make the background look like fluid, running water, giving off a natural yet organic feeling. The flowers displayed in the artwork is also very traditional-looking.At the top of the painting, there is a single brown line. It looks like tiny pebbles have been put together to form one straight line. This makes it look like the painting has been framed, supporting the above aspects in its organic ways.

This is a postmodern frame because the colour of the artwork itself is rather the opposite to the coloring of its background. The vase has a painting of a single, red flower. The bottom half of the vase is generally the colour red, swirling underneath the flower. This could suggest the ‘pure in the rage’, because although the main colour that is used is red, the composer creates flowing patterns, producing a calm and gentle vibe. The background of the artwork, however, is the opposite. The composer has used the colour black, usually meaning death.
This frame has incorporated the technique of ‘culture’. It is evident in its many uses of colours. The explosive colour combinations describes the Korean culture as a culture with many interesting colours to show the world. The warm colours in this piece (red, pink, orange, yellow) suggests the fun and celebratory side of the culture, and the cool colours (green - including the forest background - blue) shows that the Korean culture also has a calm and refreshing side.
This artwork uses the technique of ‘symbolism.’ The dark atmosphere symbolises loneliness and a ‘no-hope’/’loss of hope’ sort of emotion. The black symbolises death and darkness. But the single flower in the centre symbolises the only hope there is in a lonely, sad, background. The simplicity and the smudged effect of the artwork makes it seem ancient and olden.
