Blossom – mistral, 2010
acrylic paint, inkjet print on canvas
76 x 117 cm (2 parts)
Note / In Blossom – butterfly, Blossom – storm, Blossom – mistral and Blossom – hurricane, Van Warmerdam reacts to the stormy gusts of wind that seem to be present in the film stills. She says about Blossom – butterfly, ‘During my somewhat energetic painting of this canvas, the stormy blowing of the wind resulted in two flapping butterfly wings.’
Note / The point of departure for the large Blossom series was again ‘highlighting what the image already contains’.
