Surely You Jest

I chose this title because the profusion of colored poppies creates a jester’s suit. The wild color and pattern is in contrast to the pose of the figure, suggesting that appearances can be deceiving. She wears a poppy mask, which conjures the Italian Pulcinella tradition. There are 36 poppies contained within the figure and at least 10 different varieties. I love all the different forms and color in which this flower grows, particularly the blue Himalayan poppy. The poppy is a flower rich in symbolism, such as pain relief, remembrance of fallen soldiers, and Morpheus the god of sleep.
