We can bring the outside world in with art. Floral compositions can add a cheerful touch, while views of familiar places or imaginary lands can create a calming environment.
Nature and landscapes have been timeless subjects of artworks and are very popular this year. While confined, we have also become more and more aware of the importance of creating a pleasant space at home, and the soothing effect of being immersed in nature. We can bring the outside world in with art. Floral compositions can add a cheerful touch, while views of familiar places or imaginary lands can create a calming environment.
With irresistible and unexpected compositions of human figures juxtaposed with flora, floral figures have become a prevalent subject for artists working across mediums. Surrealist art aficionados will appreciate the dreamlike quality of this trend, which has undoubtedly taken off for its reinvention of time-honoured subjects: the human form and nature. Inherently poetic and evocative of nature, floral heads, silhouettes, and bodies intertwined with botanicals can infuse your space with a timeless sense of romanticism.
This art trend expresses a desire to get back to nature and exudes feelings of harmony, fantasy, and whimsy, from Marlies Plank’s cheeky photography to Karenina Fabrizzi’s elegant silhouettes.
The trend is so big that Juried Art Competitions revolving around the trend are mushrooming, such as the “5th LANDSCAPE": where all visual artists from around the world are invited to submit their best artworks on the theme for inclusion in the exhibition. All types of art styles were accepted, including both 2D and 3D works, painting, sculpture, digital, printmaking, fibre, photography, graphic, mixed media, as well as experimental and installation works.
The theme of this international juried art competition is LANDSCAPE. Applying artist were free to apply their own interpretation in representing the overall theme. Artists could rely on the broadest meaning of the subject matter, so it was perfectly fine to include scenes of cityscapes, water habitats, etc. Additionally, natural and artificial subject matters, as well as representational, surreal, and abstract concepts, in any media, were considered for selection.
Exhibition of selected works runs from 17th to 31st July 2022.
