Artwork Description

Oil on wood, ready to hang.

Signed on the front.

This artwork comes with an external frame

Major paintings are not always very big. Sometimes they are, and this one is in the middle. A typical busy work, with lots of different flowers and a lot of colours. Not many artists in Australia dear to tackle a busy composition like this. There is a lot to see, and when you are finished you want to look again. When I go for a walk in the garden, I pick different flowers, but when I need a particular one but is out of season, I can only work from memory. With every flower I paint I am re-living memories because of their scent.

All art by Jos Kivits

Just a few objects found in the house of a deceased uncle who was reading the paper while having his last smoke from the Ming tobacco pot (which lid is invisible behind the box.  The box with some small personal trinkets, a small checkered  pill box,  and an empty red glass flower vase, as he was a widower and did not like to see dying flowers in his house anymore. The feeling of holding something in your hands that is hundred of years old, like the pewter and the ceramic Japanese vase, gives me a feeling of agelessness. It vibrates through my entire body and to spend weeks painting something like this climaxes to an explosion in my imagination. A painting of this calibre is and always will be an eye catcher when people realise it has not been created with shortcuts and tricks, but genuinely by discipline and artistry without smoke and mirrors.
