FLORAL PAINTINGS COLLECTION
This painting is based on Japanese Iris flowers, however it is substantially different to how it would look in its natural setting. This is one of Teyjah’s trademarks as she rarely sticks to true colours. A complementary colour scheme was chosen to highlight the floral quality, and a greater opacity in the blue paint was used to highlight the background. This makes the flower visually advance and stand out.
Teyjah believes her use of colour is what makes her florals more interesting. This piece took 12 years to complete, as she was working on it a little bit at a time while waiting for other paintings to dry, with big lapses between painting sessions. This was started in 2002 and completed in 2014.
