Basking In Yellow

Piper Bowker

Basking In Yellow (2024) is an oil painting on canvas featuring a humanized daffodil. By bringing this flower to life, this piece encompasses the imagination and how it can create a dystopian world where we can see a flower’s emotions. By putting this flower in a relaxed state, this work captures how my imagination would picture a flower sitting in the warm sun, growing and soaking in life. Its expression is made to give a better understanding of how we, as humans, can create a new meaning to life with the nature that surrounds us. 

This work was made at the end of my last semester at Emily Carr University and is the start to a new series that I will be creating. If you would like to follow this series, please follow my journey on my Instagram.
