Asia University Museum of Modern Art
Flowers are continuous reminders that there is beauty in every season. They grow and decay, emphasizing that no living thing is apart from the circle of life. With their quiet strength and fragile beauty, flowers have always been a popular subject in many forms of art. Flowers are generally made up of petals, stem, leaves, and roots. Through visually dissecting this basic flower form, we see its elements reflected in art— dots, lines, and blocks of color that form the basis of drawing, painting, and sculpture, their varying shapes and colors inspiring limitless creations.
