Colorado's contribution to MICHEL MIRABAL's Floral Series "The Sunflower"
Out of all the Artwork by Michel Mirabal available at the Aspen Art Gallery, The Sunflower stands out as an intriguing piece. It represents what MICHEL is renowned for doing, expressing and encapsulated the beauty and the moment. Unlike the 'Flags' or the 'Umbrella' Series. The 'Floral' Series is a not just inspired by the stunning wild sunflowers, Michel enjoyed during his stay at the Highlands, here in Aspen but a homage to human relationships, and above all, LOVE.
The contrast created by the poetics of flowers, and the materials used by Michel Mirabal (rice, barbed wire, Bullets... Read more) is striking. Michel's aromas never fail to entice the viewer to explore his offerings ... Ultimately, the interpretation belongs to the viewer; but the story behind the creation is to be found in Michel's inspiration for this series... His personal life, his love for his partner.
Michel created the Sunflower as a means to relish in the energies of her! As she was so far away, back in Cuba : "Those eyes, this smile are so yours... They gave me the inspiration for the Flower Series" - MICHEL MIRABAL.
"Already from 5 years have passed... At that moment you were only an illusion and I saw you from far away, but today, that you are a reality, I want to be grateful to you and be able to give you back the happy moments that this series has given me, the doors that it opened to me, and particularly the biggest and important of all of those doors: the door of your heart" - MICHEL MIRABAL
