Recent works, Tulip fantasia
I recently completed a digital work about tulips, which is the opposite of the Tulip mania I worked on before. If a tulip maniac focused on human obsession and madness for tulips, the completed Tulip Fantasia is a story about tulips as beauty itself. After completing work with an always dark vibe, I always continued my work with a bright theme again turn by turn. I consider myself a very curious painter. Drawing with a single, repetitive theme is almost torture to me. Instead, as if a signature represents it's attribute, I think that my style of painting is always consistent, whether it is acrylic, watercolor, or digital art with various themes.
Before painting this Tulip Fantasia, I remember visiting the Netherlands for a while living in Germany. The beautiful tulips that bloomed in various colors as if they were marching in Keukenhof, Netherland, always remain in my memory like a happy dream.
Tulips, Keukenhof, Netherland, by Myungja Anna Koh
The flower language of tulips is a confession of love, fascination, and eternal affection. It is like a beautiful crown resting on the head of a charming queen. How did six simple petals come together to create such a lovely shape? It is as if they knew and gathered the most beautiful points. I digitally completed the beauty of these tulips as if walking in a dream garden. The brightness of the light in the middle was adjusted so that the light in between could walk along the beautiful path of the tulips along the line of sight.
After finishing the work, I uploaded it to Fine Art America. This site is helpful because you can see virtually when the work has been applied with a product other than canvas.
I've been to an exhibition by an artist from Africa when I was in Germany before. He displayed all of his works on shopping bags instead of on canvas. When I asked why, and he said that more people carry the shopping bag than a canvas? It was his special concept. As shown in the picture above, if you carry a bag made of my work, your work will be more exposed. That is a great joy for painters.
Below is the mask's style.
Like tulips with the flower language of happiness, I hope that the corona will disappear next year so that we will no longer have to wear a mask.
