Neo Impressionistic Florals

Posted on 12/22/2014

Flowers express life in a different perspective. They are not just flowers, but a shift of reality. That’s how Colleen Sandland sees flowers, her favorite subjects. By using bold, bright and vibrant color trios, Colleen draws the viewer in the things they may lack to notice every day – such as a delicate flower is an indication of the vastness of our existence. She categorizes her work as “Neo Impressionistic Florals”.

The characteristics of a flower are delicate, and smaller, yet larger than life. They are not just flowers, but a shift of reality. They can convey emotions of nostalgia, melancholy, or even euphoria. A shift of awareness can be empowering when you change the way you look at a flower, or life.
