Her interest in plants and flowers has always been a source of inspiration for Los Angeles artist Colleen Sandland. The exposure to the details in nature has given her the visual ornaments that reveal the secret language in her paintings. Colleen uses balanced color trios to draw the viewer in. She applies intricate layers of acrylic paint and resin with sophisticated details to give the viewer a lasting experience.
Colleen Sandland’s artworks highlight a cognitive shift and the perspective of an open mind. Colleen categorizes her work as “Neo Impressionistic Florals.” The characteristics of a flower are delicate, and smaller, yet larger than life. The things we may lack to notice every day, such as a fragile flower, is an indication of the vastness of our existence. To speak of flowers in a transcendental term, the idea is now to bloom a new consciousness and awareness into our vision. Unlimited realities and new defining thought patterns bloom in our minds. Flowers are a reminder of a vastness of our existence, but the real key is to question if we are not limited to the idea of deterioration, but rather to regenerate.
