Dream Orchids — Romance and Reality
$70.00 – $2,392.00
Lush flower petals like jewels or crystallized sugar, light reflecting on dewdrops, in colors from a dream landscape. Impressions of a secret world…
…and if the viewer thinks they see a cetaceous smile in there, disguised, they wouldn’t be the first to say so.
There is a romance about orchids. For years they had a reputation for being difficult, the costly pets of wealthy elites with private greenhouses. However it happened — perhaps through modern hybridization, maybe by dispelling some myths — now many orchids are manageable without too many requirements or much maintenance.
Orchids still hold their romance, though, so that didn’t come from rarity or the impossibility of keeping one alive. There’s something else, less tangible. The lush petals tend not to be flimsy, and they possess a lushness like a newborn’s skin — it keeps them pristine for months, in some orchid species. Get the knack of them and orchids can reward you for years, throughout much of the year.
Our “Dream Orchids,” of course received special treatment by the artist-photographer. The richness of the petals and how they glisten is revealed, and there are mysteries to be explored in those depths. A great example in our “Impressions and Abstractions” collection.
