Flowers in April
“Flowers in April” addresses the grieving process of losing a loved one and the search of closure. The owl in the painting represents silence of solitude to the people who passed away during the pandemic of Covid-19. The color green of the woman figure represents the search for balance and growth of finding closure for one’s passing. The barbed wire on her hair is the pain she’s dealing with in the denial stage of the grieve process. The lips on her cheek is the memories and experiences of the passed loved one and cherishing their memory of them to not be forgotten because true death is when no one remembers you.
