Flower Power is a slogan emblematic of the counter culture of the 1960’s. Conversely, flower painting is hardly a radical activity and for me to continue to include floral imagery without falling into the ease of repetition I try to create new ways to present my work.
The use of collaged elements has always interested me, mostly on the periphery of paintings but for this exhibition I have chosen to work on 12mm thick plywood that allows me to attach metal and ephemera over the whole surface area. It is like solving a puzzle only knowing vaguely what the end result might be.
In early 2019 I visited Tasmania and the USA for the first time. This current work has been greatly influenced by those adventures. Before leaving I had produced some still lifes of my power tools with roses, thus Power Flower. In the US amongst so much great art I came across Andy Warhol’s “Drill”, 1961 that I had never known of before. I felt some synchronicity. ~ Stephen Nothling
