“It was in my flaws, I found a much deeper truth and it is from them, I bloom, a black rose.” When you hear ‘rose’, you think of lush red flowers. But my painting today is one of black roses.
This was a painting outside my usual comfort zone because it wasn’t with regular paint, but rather, alcohol inks. The untraditionally of roses being black is the exact message that I wanted to convey through this alcohol ink art.
It shows that what you think is the conventional way of existence is only an idea you engulf in the bounds of your thought process. If you burst your bubble and look out, among all the red roses, there always is a black rose. And while some might say that one black rose doesn’t fit in, I choose to believe that’s it’s special and unique in its own manner.
The silver detail is meant to differentiate each rose as its own individual self, among the merged shades of black ink. This piece is so elegant and unembellished, but is a very complex merge of a myriad of shades of black, white, and grey, merging together through the alcohol medium of the ink, to form a charming bouquet of flowers. Because of course, alcohol and flowers are universally the best duo!
This is a set of 3 paintings, each 30 cm x 20 cm, unframed.
