Known for his vibrant and engaging pop art, Colbert is set to unveil this latest series, Flowers Flowers Flowers – a celebration of the universal and profound symbol of the flower – available exclusively on OpenSea through Audio Galleries.
The OpenSea drop has launched today Thursday, 4th of May and will last 72 hours.
The flower paintings have been a strand of Colbert’s practice in recent years, initially inspired by Warhol’s 1960s silkscreen prints. Reinvented within Colbert’s unique digital world, the juxtaposition of the shiny, toy-like, Warhol flowers against the prickly cactus thorns of Lobster Land, offer a contemporary perspective on the fragility and beauty of the flower. His appropriation of Warhol’s flowers speaks to his larger interest in covering canonical art and digital spheres – a fascination that persists throughout his practice.
For me flowers are the ultimate symbols of mortal beauty, I love how universally poetic they– Philip Colbert
are. The sculptural essence of transient life, how a moment of beauty defies everything
forever in the moment.
