STILL LIFE WITH FLOWERS
Still life. Flowers.
Mass shootings. Flowers.
Last week we celebrated Spring. This week we're mourning the victims of the heinous crimes in Atlanta and Boulder.
Makeshift memorials always pop up wherever people's lives are senselessly broken. Strangers lay flowers and gather in silence.
Placing flowers by those who left us behind is regarded by anthropologists as one of the oldest tributes to the departed. Soil samples in burial sites determined that funeral flowers were indeed placed by our ancestors at least 62,000 years ago. And we still do.
Flowers are a symbol of rebirth and a metaphor for the temporary and ephemeral beauty in the inescapable cycle of life. Let’s capture that short-lived beauty in our paintings.
