Flora of the Tropics: Orchid


Flora of the Tropics: Orchid


One of the three installations of Gin Long’s tropical flowers series.
In Flora of the Tropics: Orchid, Gin Long creates his impression of the Paphiopedilum or Venus Slipper, one of the most widely cultivated and hybridized in the orchid genera.

The artist chooses to emphasize on the mottled pattern on many of the species. He uses luminescent flaming colours of red, orange and yellow to accentuate the flower’s flamboyant beauty.

He carefully composes the background with complementary colours, using geometric rectangular forms to give the artwork a contemporary twist to the floral art genre.
