Artwork

Intricate orchid flowers rendered in graphic, patterned blue and white. Part of a series of paintings and wood cutouts inspired by artist Johnny Karwan's love of pattern and the natural expression of spontaneous simplicity and flow. "I painted this piece with an idea in mind of a 'nouveau' floral scene in a rich and soothing ultramarine blue," he says.

Johnny Karwan’s body of work is best described as stylized realism on birch panel. The wood grain shows through in each composition, which somehow feels simultaneously traditional and surreal. “The texture and grain of the wood that shows through the transparent layers of paint, makes its own statement in a way, as the fingerprint of its natural origins that persist beyond the transformation from tree to painted surface,” says the artist. Johnny is inspired by natural history and objects of the past, which contributes a vintage feel to the work. Johnny’s studio is based in his 1904 Edwardian flat in the historic Haight Ashbury neighborhood of San Francisco.

Have you ever done florals like this at larger sizes, say 36" x 36"?
