Art: Poppies in Blue #167 by Artist Tamara Tsurkan
Poppy has been used against toothaches and coughs. I try to emphasize their frailness by a variety of background colors and shades that evoke a feeling of anticipation and uncertainty and blur the boundary between the reality and the unknown. To me, poppies symbolize the fragility of a human soul in its quest to perceive the infiniteness of the unknown and the uncertain around it. By poising the elegant and fragile flowers on a mystifying and perplexing background I try to find unifying themes in diversity of colors as I strive to find unifying principles in the diversity of life.
