Oil on gallery-wrap canvas, 36” x 36” x 1.5”, ready to hang. A frame can be added. My Floralscapes are a recent, still growing series of large florals that have abstract and surreal qualities.

Tulipomania: Pale Pink Parrots

Oil on gallery-wrap canvas, 36” x 42” x 1.5” / 91.5 cm x 106.5 cm x 3.8 cm, ready to hang. Parrot tulips are a favourite subject of mine, due to their extraordinary shapes and patterning. ‘Tulipomania’, or ‘Tulip Mania’, refers to a phenomenal cultural period when Dutch and British elites collected tulips from Ottoman Turkish rulers. Paintings of them and other highly-prized flowers were far less expensive to purchase, and hence the botanical paintings of the Dutch Enlightenment also became hot collector’s items. I aim to allude to the opulence of and fascination with tulips in my Tulipomania series. This painting is available - please contact me with enquiries.
