About this artwork

Year2020 Dimensions60 × 60 cm (width×height) Medium Support

It always seemed to me that the herbaceous peony is the very epitome of June. Larger than any rose,
it has something of the cabbage rose's voluminous quality; and when it finally drops from the vase, it
sheds its petticoats with a bump on the table, all in an intact heap, much as a rose will suddenly fall,
making us look up from our book or conversation, to notice for one moment the death of what had
still appeared to be a living beauty.
Vita Sackville-West

Wietzie created Living Beauty with a painting knife using different mark making techniques, which resulted in a textured surface. The flowers are done impasto style.

Created by Wietzie Gerber

Art is an adventure full of mystery, frustration and profound joy. I am continuously torn between despair and elation.
