To experience the changing of the seasons and to present moments, it has become a routine of mine to paint the first bloom in my surrounding during its flowering season. This artwork is inspired by the Passion Vine that I spotted in my neighbourhood closed to my art studio.
I was fascinated by those interesting fringed petals and splendourous tendrils; the white petals shine bright like precious gems under the sunshine.
Fun Fact of these unusual blossoms: Passion Flower Essence is used to purify and strengthen one’s connection to unconditional love even nowadays.
A Truly Special and Symbolic Gift- Passion Flower, was named by Roman Catholic priests In the 15th and 16th centuries for the Passion of Jesus Christ. There were old sayings that the flower's five petals and five petal-like sepals represented the 10 faithful apostles. As for the circle of filaments in the centre of the bloomsome, stands for the Crown of Thorns.
This artwork is painted during the lockdown, a special isolation diary that I wrote with my paintbrushes. Flowers always bloom in their own time without competing with other flowers. May we all bloom in our time in the best season.
Hope you enjoy this artwork of mine.
Bloom like flowers.
In this signature series of mine, flowers as the object represent life itself to me.
Our own will to be alive, and the way we want to be alive.
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 uncertainties, furthermore, to be able to be closer to the truth a little bit more.
