About artwork: :Flower Talk
Natalia Kostaki is a Greek-Russian contemporary artist. She lives in Athens and is best known for her vivid, brightly –hued paintings that invite a broader understanding of symbolic paintings. She has developed her own unique visual aesthetic. Melding iconography, design, art-historical and mythological motifs, as well as personal experience, Natalia creates densely patterned works. Utilizing geometric shapes and colourful graphics, the artist achieves optically compelling visual effects.
In at least two famous children’s stories the protagonists are young girls who have the ability to hear flowers talk to each other. It is George Sand’s Castle of Pictordu and Lewis’Alice Through the Looking Glass, daisies, roses and tiger lilies are saying to one another how excited, tired or annoyed they are. And the girl listens. She tries to say something to the flower fellows, but they cannot hear her speak. Indeed, on a morning a walk in the park, plants are waving in silent communication at you. But are they really silent?
