Winter Salon 2024

04/06/2024 - 13/07/2024

John Pastoriza-Pinol
Iris x germanica (Lost Love)

2024

watercolour on Arches 300gsm paper

120.00 x 80.00 cm

This work combines a unique blend of floriography, a method of cryptological communication through the strategic use of flowers, and the integration of a two-dimensional matrix barcode, (QR code) which has become an emblematic feature of the COVID-19 era. The enlarged portrayal of the Iris as a symbol of lost love underscores the ephemeral nature of life and serves as a respectful tribute to those affected by the global pandemic. Similar to the lost symbolism of Victorian-era flowers, the QR code will also diminish in historical significance over time.

$12,500.00
