ACRYLIC ON CANVAS
As an artist, Omiros was unconcerned with the rigid conventions of academic painting. The landscape genre, a hallmark of this long-standing tradition of painting, is approached by Omiros with the spontaneity and liberation of the Impressionists, and the emotion and energy of the Abstract Expressionists and Lyrical Abstractionists.
Spring fills the air and space of the composition with the bright, pastel hues that represent the season. The clear blue sky, rich and pure in color, is interspersed with strokes of white clouds that seem to float across the top the canvas with a sense of lightheartedness.
Various shades of pink cherry blossoms emerge from the lower right of Spring, stretching across the bottom of the piece, which is made up of short brushstrokes and dabs that build upon one another, creating an appearance of fullness. The abundance of life and growth captures the essence of the season with its lush representation of plant life emerging against the previously barren winter. The shades of pink, white, green, and red complement the deep blue of the sky, where a lack of movement in terms of broader and longer brushstrokes used to depict it, are offset by the energetic bursts of color shaping the delicate flowers as they rise toward the sky.
