Not sure where to start? Discover more about the artists: Simon M Smith is a Lancashire-born artist whose work plays with different mediums to interesting effect. His floral paintings include elements of dress pattern tissue and torn paper, and the result is an interestingly layered piece that draws the viewer in, inviting them to look closer.
Andrew Mcneile Jones is an artist who also trained as a filmmaker, a training that is clearly visible in his painted work. Jones’ paintings have an almost cinematic quality, playing with light and shadow to exaggerate the natural beauty of his floral subjects.
Flower art doesn’t always have to be hyper-realistic, as proved by Dawn Beckles and her brightly coloured still life paintings. Drawing inspiration from the native flora of her home country, Barbados, Beckles’ work is a study of colour and form. Her bold colour palette and simple, clean shapes make for a high visual impact, as in the piece Bearded Lily with Pears
There are certain subjects that seem to pop up again and again in art, and flowers are a perennial muse for artists working in all mediums. Whether they’re painting the first buds of spring or the unfolding of a rose, artists across the world have attempted to address our relationship to the natural world, and ourselves, through flower art.
The Ancient Egyptians were known for their paintings and carvings of flowers, particularly the lotus that was thought to represent concepts of creation and rebirth. Flowers took on a different role in Medieval Europe, where they were often found adorning tapestries and other large textiles. Here, they were seen as mostly decorative and a backdrop to the more important human scenes occurring in the work. In the Renaissance and Baroque periods, flowers often figured as the central subject of still life paintings such as Jacob Vosmaer’s A Vase with Flowers, painted in 1613. These paintings tended to be highly realistic, with concealed brushstrokes that make them appear almost photographic.
Georgia O’Keeffe is perhaps the most famous artist to have chosen flowers as a central subject in her work. Her close-up views of the insides of flowers and their petals attracted both praise and scandal in the art world, with some condemning her work as eroticism due to its resemblance to female genitalia. O’Keeffe rejected these ideas, claiming that they had been influenced by the ideas of Freud that were so popular at the time. Whatever the case is, the beauty of these paintings is undeniable. O’Keeffe’s expert use of colour and shading helped her to create some of the most impressive images of natural forms.
