Red & Purple
Bold painterly tulips blooming their way around abstract brush strokes. Celebrating the love, beauty, and restorative powers of being in nature. While red tulips are associated with love, purple tulips symbolise elegance and royalty. This series is inspired by a chat over coffee sat in a small local Edinburgh park surrounded by blooming trees and tulips. Whilst talking about pandemic strangeness, personal worries, fears and just plain randomness our eyes kept wandering to the flowering nature around us. The series aims to capture the thought processes, emotions, and impressions of natural and general beauty the encounter left me with. The pieces work very well sat next to each other, connected by the organic brushstrokes.
