    Wild Flower

    • This is the print carefully reproduced from the original work “Wild Flower”, which was featured in Bloomsbury Art Fair (London) in 2012. The work was produced in 2011 when I started to enjoy gardening. However, this work was inspired by Andy Warhol’s Flowers created in 1964. It is said that Warhol produced the work as a tribute to the slain President John F. Kennedy. He chose hibiscus, while I did geranium because I’d rather wanted to portray lesser flowers.

      These kind of insignificant flowers are often featured in my prime subject alongside the fallen leaves on the theme of nature. It is my interpretation of the concept of Still Life genre and for enhancing the concept, I completed the work by painting a fly on a petal of the flower as the old masters used to paint various insects alongside the flowers and plants to convey the message of “memento Mori (remember your mortality)” through their beauty and ephemerality.


      本ポスターは、2012年ロンドンにて開催のブルームズベリー・アートフェアに出展された作品『Wild Flower』を忠実に再現したもの。本作品は、ボクがガーデニングに熱を入ればじめた2011年に制作。インスピレーションとなったのは、アンディ・ウォーホルが1964年に制作した『Flowers』。一説によれば、ウォーホルは公に暗殺されたジョン・F・ケネディー大統領への追悼の意を込めて、この作品を制作したといいます。彼はハイビスカスをモチーフにしましたが、ボクはより小さな名もない花を描きたいと思い、ゼラニウムをモチーフとしました。
