The Angel’s Trumpet

Mixed Media, May 2020
Original. 42 x 56″

After going on many walks in quarantine, I got to know the local plants, bushes, flowers, and trees around Beverly Hills. For this plant portrait, I combined Georgia O’Keefe’s “Petunias”(1925) with Henri Rousseau’s “Tiger in a Tropical Storm” (1891). Both artists seemed artistically isolated in their styles and I felt I wanted to mix their work into my own.

The flower in this image  is called an Angel’s Trumpet or Belladonna. It’s also known to be poisonous. In my reserach, I found that medieval women used to concentrate this into water and dilate their eyes to make themselves more attractive to others. It’s now used for dilation of the eyes in modern science but can also be fatal if ingested. Even touching its pedals irritates the skin. I thought it was a beautiful flower and wanted to make a painting that highlighted its deadly beauty.
