A Trip Between Three Continents

 

This painting tells the story of my friend Isabelle, which is similar to mine. Isabelle is French, her husband is from Singapore, and she lives in the US. She creates beautiful flower bouquets capturing her three cultures. I am French, my husband is from Romania, I live in the US, and I create art pieces that capture my three cultures.

The bouquet portrays both France and Singapore: it mixes French sophistication (in how the bouquet is composed) with the delicate style of Asia, represented by the mokara orchids and an elaborate, detailed fan.

To accompany the still-life, the collage background moves into the different chapters of this multicultural story. From the old (the masked-balls of the French aristocracy) to the new (the ever-growing bamboo trees), the conversation is engaged with pictures, stamps, and symbols of each country.

I had a lot of fun assembling the background, painting the bouquet, and participating in this "conversation!"
