Description of the Artwork “Poppies in a Pink Pewter Pot”

Poppies abound here in the late spring. The pot is real, in my studio. I found it and bought it at a vide grenier. Poppies are always symbolic. In British minds, often they speak of death, associated with the first world war. Not so here in France, where people wear blue flowers in memory of those who dies in the Great War. Here in France they are more symbolic of life and spring.

About the artist
David Abse

David Abse, France

I was born in London in the UK, but now l have lived in France for many years where I paint, draw and live with my family and pets. I paint in different styles - this sometimes seems to be a disadvantage - and my work is sometimes abstract, sometimes figurative. It all stems from my obsessions and my drawings. Identity is a recurring theme, in all painting formats. I believe we all take on different identities at different times to meet what ever faces us at any particular place at any different time. We can all be children, parents, teachers, students, revolutionaries, conservative. How do we identify ourselves? Me? I am a painter. A disabled painter. A Jewish painter. A British Painter. A father. A man. I don't always know for sure. Paint your own revolution. Be what you need, and what you want.
