In BloomFlowers, Nature, and Contemporary Painting Apr 23, 2020Contemporary Six is delighted to present the mixed online exhibition In Bloom featuring paintings by a number of artists. We are offering free delivery for all paintings purchased in the exhibition.* More information to follow.
Each artist will display several works which take the beauty of flowers as their subject. Whether sunflowers or waterlilies, peonies or poppies, flowers have been an eternal fascination of painters throughout the ages. The flower-vase still life was immortalised in western art history with the Dutch painters of the 17th Century, but contemporary painters, too, have found new ways to reinvigorate the simple flower — poised as it is between vulnerability and flamboyance. In this exhibition, Contemporary Six unfurls the flower in contemporary painting to reveal new, innovative ways of depicting its organic beauty.
