Chrysanthemum 24.2x71.0(cm) Oil on panel 2021

Research on impressionism and changes in materials, which started in 2019, has changed a lot in the oil painting work that I usually do.
This work is the best representation of technological changes.
I tried to mix the colors in the canvas, not in the palette.
And I placed the color with an anomalous brushing.
So the colors were mixed through the viewer's eyes.
As a result, strong and rich color changes and rough Matier became a good artwork.



Lily 27.3x22.0(cm) Oil on canvas 2020

Lily shining in the sunshine.
The flower language of lilies is purity and unwavering love.

Once upon a time, there lived a pretty maiden in a village.
But there was a very bad son of a powerful man in the village.
The son, who had a crush on the virgin, tried to fool her.
But when the virgin finally refused, he ended up killing her.
Later, the son of a powerful man reflected on his actions and buried her in a sunny spot.
And a very pretty flower bloomed in the tomb.
When the son of a powerful man approached the pretty flower, the flower stopped him from approaching through a terrible smell.
She kept her heart even when she became a flower.

Then one day, she met a young painter on her walk, and he too fell in love with Iris.

The painter eagerly proposed, and in the end, moved by the artist's enthusiasm, Iris offered the following conditions:

"Please draw the same flower as you live."

The painter drew with all his enthusiasm, and Iris was moved by the beautiful figure the moment she saw it.

But soon she gave a disappointed exclamation, "There is no scent in this picture."

It was then.

A yellow butterfly flew in from somewhere and sat down gently on the painting, folding its wings calmly and kissing the flowers.

Since then, Iris, retains the scent of the kiss they first shared, and still smells sweet and deep when the flower blooms.
