About The Artwork

This deep cradled painting on birch board can be hung as is or framed for display. It features a bouquet of irises in a bottle vase adorned with a playful lion design. The background is a whirl of greens resulting in the overall sense of a painterly messel green aka my favorite color. A fun note on the color, from Taylor Tripp Landscape Design: "The colour green is a strong theme of Barbadian gardens. Messel green to be precise. Oliver Messel was an influential designer of properties in Barbados during the 1960s, both interiors and exteriors. He produced a particular colour green, which is seen in many properties still today on the island."

Lara Meintjes, also known as Agnes, is a South African artist, happily living in Williamstown, Massachusetts. She is particularly interested in arrangements of color, and the effects of each color's presence on the others within a composition. She also really likes flowers and awkward ceramic objects. Lara is fascinated by the dividing line between fact and fantasy, and the lingering imprint of childhood on our adult lives. She likes to play in the negative space between objects.
