In this painting, Nerfin’s signature use of vivid colours is in full effect. The contrast of the royal blue, bright yellow and soft violet produces both a tension and energy that lights up the room. He plays with texture as well, making the flower petals and leaves look like origami paper. The harsh, stark lines make the painting seem rough, depicting the subject in a way that is uncommon for flowers.
