‘Loves Hope’ Is one in a series of Adele’s floral paintings in her new ‘Language of Flowers’ collection. Adele has always been fascinated by flowers and Floriography. Dating back to the Victorian times floriography was used as a means of coded communication through various flowers and floral arrangements, allowing people to express feelings which otherwise could not be spoken. Within this exciting new collection Adele wants to explore this language with the use of flora within her works. Each painting having a meaning and a message behind it! With many layers and washes of inks and acrylic paint, this strong but delicate painting is full of colour, energy and life. This sits beautiful against the fragility and delicacy in which Adele has approached the subject matter. Adele has used a free flowing approach with her mark making, by using a white, high gloss fluid acrylic, thus giving the painting a sense of movement, drama and texture, as it’s slightly raised this catches the light beautifully.
