Artwork Description

Acrylic on canvas, stretched and ready to hang.

Signed certificate of authenticity.

I live in the Maleny area of the beautiful Sunshine Coast Hinterland in Queensland, Australia. The picturesque hillsides and rain forests make this countryside ideal for weddings and celebrations.
In this artwork I am exploring the relationships that we have with flowers, especially the familiar tradition practiced by some cultures in which bridal bouquets are tossed after the wedding. I wanted to capture the anticipation one might experience as the bouquet flies through the air. The excitement, the dream to become reality, the eagerness to catch the bouquet as it appears suspended in time.

The tradition remains but the participants may change. The diagonal design in this abstraction supports this social interaction like an invisible garden trellis. These bouquets have been created with reference to simple homegrown flowers, mostly grown in our country garden at Maleny, and my own photographs. They symbolize love and innocence.
