This artwork is inspired by my visiting to Melbourne International Flower and Garden Show on Autumn 2018.
I was impressed by the pleasant composition and delightful combination, the image stocked in my mind intensively, touched my heart deeply, so that I decided to freeze the magical moment onto canvas with my paint brushes.
Red chrysanthemums symbolise love, deep passion, and optimism.
White roses are symbols of virtue, and trust ,dark pink roses are symbolic of gratitude and appreciation.
The yellowy hue of the colour combination stands for vitality, and the Orange in perfectly round shape on the dining table stands for harmony and abundance in life, and that's the message in this particular painting I tried to deliver.
As long as we are alive, we have a life time blessing, we may feel happy, loved or even sorrow at the moment, but as long as we can still feel this moment, we have a life time blessing.
Bloom like flowers series by HSIN LIN
Although it may a bit scary to tell the story as an artist, I would still like to share the concept behind the series.
Bloom like flowers—In this signature series of mine, I try to paint as detailed as possible in my own vision.
Flowers as the object represent life itself to me.
Our own will to be alive, and the way we want to be alive.
There's so many uncertainty in life that we can not control, so that there's good things as well as bad things. However, even the wilted petals become the nutrition to the plant in natural order, so that I never avoid the wilted petals in my artworks. It is like how we deal with failures.
While I carefully paint these tiny flower petals, or built up those fine leaves vines, it is like the way we try to figure out those uncertainty, furthermore, to be able to be closer to the truth a little bit more.
The stage (a dining table in this painting) is a life time, we are our own man and we can decide how we dance. You can fight with you all, you may also dance with flow. Either way, it is unique, one of a kind, and this stage belongs to you only.
There's a saying that a painting is a period of time of an artist's life, for those peoples who have been following me from the beginning when I started this painting probably would know it's quite a long period of time.
Thank you for staying with me, and for anyone who's reading this message right now, thank you for being a part in my life/art journey, I hope you enjoy too.
