The main idea behind the blindfolded collection is to show a womans beauty through flowers. What do you see when you look a woman in the eyes? Is it beauty, passion, playfulness, calmness, pacification, caress, tenderness, love?
By replacing a womans gaze with flowers, I have tried to show these traits through the flowers.
In this particular work I painted a girls face covered by the sweet peas flowers. I associate these flowers with incredible tenderness and lightness. The little curly endings of the petals speak of some playfulness and carelessness in this girls character. Full and sensual lips and slightly wavy hair, all giving a feeling of light negligence and naturalness to her entire character, also complement her image.
