There are some artists whose careers I’ve had my eye on for quite some time. Florida artist Megan Cosby definitely falls into that category. I’ve always loved her figurative work, but when I saw her beginning to move in a more abstract direction, I knew she was really getting into a beautiful groove.
This new series of abstracts, inspired by flowers, is soft, sophisticated and sensual. In these mixed media paintings, I see abstract representations of the emotion of flowers. The happiness they bring, their lingering scent and fleeting beauty.
Flowers, with their delicately temporal nature, are associated with both life and death. An early sign of spring’s renewal, as well as a token of abashed apology.
