Flower and Hummingbird III Germination
Series of works inspired by nature and whose allegory is courtship, seduction, sensuality and fertility approached from a symbolic plane where hummingbirds (courters) seek the nectar of the flower, to which she will choose one of them, which is a tribute to the feminine beauty that summons and launches the challenge to conquer their love.
The series uses the female figure as a symbol of the flower crowned by a geometric abstraction that represents the unfolding of its petals before the procession of the hummingbird (who in this third piece has reached the nectar of the flower, being the one chosen by the “flower”).
The work uses different elements to address the real, the imaginary and the symbolic, it uses realism in the human figure, geometric abstraction to suggest the psychological climate of the subject, and a stylized figuration of the hummingbird to treat it symbolically, being embedded in an attractive way to the concept in a harmonic and dynamic whole.
The composition uses a swooping triangular perspective that magnifies the nude female figure and winks at sacred art by placing the hummingbird at the top, just as in the scenes of “The Annunciation” worked by many painters in the past.
