"I always notice flowers." - Andy Warhol
The subject of flowers illustrates Warhol’s serial principle perhaps more succinctly and yet more poetically than any other. Thus, in depicting flowers, the natural potential of plants to proliferate is combined with their technical reproducibility as decorative motifs for mass production.
Although the fragile and ephemeral nature of flowers was transferred by Warhol to the realm of monumentality, an air of vulnerability and nostalgia also clings to his Flowers.

In fact, his first flower pictures followed on directly from his Disaster series, in which he focused on media images revolving around death. Warhol’s Flowers can, therefore, also be seen in light of flowers as a symbol of fugacity and death.”

About Andy Warhol

Obsessed with celebrity, consumer culture, and mechanical (re)production, Pop artist Andy Warhol created some of the most iconic images of the 20th century. As famous for his quips as for his art—he variously mused that “art is what you can get away with” and “everyone will be famous for 15 minutes”—Warhol drew widely from popular culture and everyday subject matter, creating works like his 32 Campbell's Soup Cans (1962), Brillo pad box sculptures, and portraits of Marilyn Monroe, using the medium of silk-screen printmaking to achieve his characteristic hard edges and flat areas of color. Known for his cultivation of celebrity, Factory studio (a radical social and creative melting pot), and avant-garde films like Chelsea Girls (1966), Warhol was also a mentor to artists like Keith Haring and Jean-Michel Basquiat. His Pop sensibility is now standard practice, taken up by major contemporary artists Richard Prince, Takashi Murakami, and Jeff Koons, among countless others.
