Opening Night – A Wealth of Blooms by Valerie Khoo
A Wealth of Blooms is a celebration of colour, flowers, and the richness of life. This series of artwork captures large scale floral blooms in their prime when they are at their full potential, bursting with life and energy.
Artist Valerie Khoo says: “This body of work reflects that stage of life I find myself in, along with many of my peers. They have gone beyond their tentative bud-like stages and have had the courage to go through a process of becoming. They’re now allowing themselves to enjoy life in all its fullness – unshackled, unfurled and unafraid to be who they really are.
“I love the momentum in each of the petals and love to capture each bloom with all its curves and fullness, the energy of a flower that has unfolded and is now truly free to become what it was meant to be.
“The process of creating is a deeply immersive experience for me. I get lost in all shapes and colours and eventually emerge from the creative process when the bloom is complete. I create using either acrylics or oils and love the magical alchemy of colour on colour. I love to paint the microcosms of nature at a macro size, creating images that are surprising and unpredictable.”
