Flowers, Flowers, Flowers

World-renowned British Artist, Philip Colbert unveils his latest series - a celebration of the universal and profound symbol of the flower.

By Joanne Higgins

The flower paintings have been a strand of Colbert’s practice in recent years, initially
inspired by Warhol’s 1960s silkscreen prints. Reinvented within Colbert’s unique digital
world, the juxtaposition of the shiny, toy-like, Warhol flowers against the prickly cactus
thorns of Lobster Land, offer a contemporary perspective on the fragility and beauty of the
flower. His appropriation of Warhol’s flowers speaks to his larger interest in cohering
canonical art and digital spheres – a fascination that persists throughout his practice.

“For me flowers are the ultimate symbols of mortal beauty, I love how universally poetic they
are. The sculptural essence of transient life, how a moment of beauty defies everything
forever in the moment.”

Philip Colbert


“Flower paintings are one of the great themes of art history, and I felt they make the perfect subject for an infinite supply generative edition. I very much believe in an art for all philosophy, and love the democratic reach digital collections have, and how they make unique artworks more accessible for all.”
