Pop Art Flowers
Sarah Yakawonis, 1985-
When I was in high school I dropped biology for an independent study in the art of the '60s. My guidance counselor didn't think it was a good idea, but none the less I persisted and was allowed to take the class. As I take this journey of masterpiece recreation I had to make a stop at Warhols Flowers, they not only so perfectly represent the spirit of the '60s but also really resonates with me as a person. At first glance, his flowers seem bright and light-hearted but there is a darker grittiness just below the surface.
