Rose Flower Cyan 1 Paul Gauguin
Rose No 1

The Rose in Cyan is beautiful. The shadows in blues run deep. Paul Gauguin never would have expected this use of his oil paintings.

As a flower, the blue rose means unattainable love.

The artist, David Bridburg, is constantly seeking out new techniques. These three images, early in his career, were among the most complex. Bridburg's work at times goes to much simpler minimalism. The artist refuses to create within a singular style. Leaving the audiences with a very rich dialog, Bridburg defines many conceptual goals, instead of selling an "expected" routine body of artwork.
