Howard Hodgkin - Artificial Flowers
Artificial Flowers, (1975, on loan form private collection) Howard Hodgkin (b. 1932) Oil on wood Hodgkin, whose career now spans over fifty years, is widely recognised as one of Britain’s most original abstract artists. While deeply respectful of the conventions of traditional descriptive European and Oriental art, Hodgkin primarily aims to evoke specific emotionally charged experiences, using colour, shape and composition to communicate inner feelings: ‘I paint representational pictures of emotional situations ... the most complete expression of (such) a subject would not necessarily involve description’. This painting’s title, ‘Artificial Flowers’, encourages us to look for a literal subject. We might discern ordered beds of flowers to the right of the composition, and an array of fruit to the left. However, it is not necessarily a picture of either, but rather an evocation of the artist’s feelings and memories at the specific moment of its making. The flowers may be ‘artificial’ because they are recreated, painted, not ‘real’. Artificial Flowers dates from 1975, and is easily the most recent picture currently on display in our main galleries. During the 1970s, Hodgkin worked on wooden supports such as door panels and old boards, displayed unframed, to stress the nature of a painting as ‘object’. Here he skilfully combines opaque blocks of paint with veil-like washes in a decorative patterning that recalls the Indian Pahari miniatures which he avidly collects. A vibrant but carefully considered arrangement of zesty colours and assertive forms, Artificial Flowers demands attention – and stays in the mind.
182/365: Antenna Rose
David bought me this artificial flower for my vehicle's antenna (and attached it too!) with the notion that I'll be more easily able to find my way back to my transportation in large parking lots. It's a color not readily found in nature, but fits in with the notion of "my favorite color". Sometimes the relatively minor thoughtful things mean the most! Image is SOOC (straight out of the camera - i.e., unedited). 182/365: 1 July 2011
artificial flowers for
A stick and knitting needles to wrap the yarn around; a rubber band, glue, and floral wire to hold the work in place; and wool of many colors: These inexpensive everyday materials combine with a brand-new technique that unfolds in dozens of drawings to make the loveliest true-to-nature flowers. And it all begins with a simple loop, pinch, and twist of the wool to form buds, petals, and leaves. For every flower, you’ll get information on the length of the loops, the hue and thickness of wool to use, the size of the knitting needle you’ll need, and the precise method of construction.
