“Irises” reflects Henry Mercer’s passion for history, decoration, and nature. I wanted to include playful swirls of paint in the background that would be reminiscent of the impressionists, especially Van Gogh. The painting also includes decorative elements, which reflect Mercer’s love for decoration, especially shown in his decorative tiles. It also includes more earth tones than many of my other works, which reflect the color palette of Mercer’s tiles.
