Flower Power Notecards: Set of 8

Product Description

Flower Power was Elana Cooper’s first solo exhibition at Creativity Explored. It’s a fitting title for an artist who has made a lot out of her love of flowers.

The term “flower power” was coined by Allen Ginsberg during the anti-war movement in the ‘60s. Ginsberg encouraged protestors to bring masses of flowers to the front lines as a visual spectacle and hand them out to everyone. 

In a similar vein, Elana disarms the viewer with her whimsical yet serious flower portraits, which exude a graphic visual power.  Her monochromatic works are bold and direct.  This work, like Elana, has so much personality.  Her artwork pays tribute to her subjects in a personal way, capturing the shape and essence of each flower that she paints.  The way a stem bends awkwardly across the paper, or the way she stacks different flower and leaf shapes on top of each other, shows us what draws her attention.  There is a tenderness and humanity in her flowers that brings the viewer in.
