Flower Portraits

By: Claudy: 21-02-2017

Just after the summer of 2016, inspired by the radical close-up flower paintings by Georgia O'Keeffe, Claudy Jongstra focused on creating a series of Flower Portraits. In between her many huge virtually monochrome murals, in these new amazing pieces a myriad of radiant colours abounds in the flower petals stemming from a pivotal heart.

The strong outbursts of creativity show the enduring power of natural dyes from pigment plants as indigo, cochineal, chamomile, dahlia, madder, weld and walnut on the everlasting beauty of wool, linen and silk.
