Blueberry Hill II
40 x 40 inches
Acrylic on canvas
In my Blueberry Hill II painting, I staged two orchids that look jazz musicians playing the saxophone on a blue background recalling the wild blueberry carpets on a hill. The pink, fruity orange and lemon yellow tones of the flowers remind me of the sweet and acidic taste of berries. Droplets of hot magenta tones recall the joyful music of the saxophone that makes the orchids happily dance.
This painting is part of my Garden of flavors series, which invite you into a larger-than-life universe where the senses mingle. In these paintings, I wanted to illustrate the associations that are created in my mind between flavors and colors. I fixed them on the canvas to remember the flavors I shown using different colors. I illustrated how the fruit flavors become liquid blue, sweet pink and succulent yellow tones, and vice versa, how the colorful flower petals can form great delicious waves in my mind and remind me of the fruit, candy and pastry tastes.
The patterns of the painting continue on the 1½in sides. It is strung with picture cords ready to hang.
