About Iris (Alizes)

The artwork titled “Iris (Alizes)” was created by artist Aaron Shikler in the year 2004. It is a representative of the New Realism art movement and falls under the genre of flower painting. This work depicts the captivating beauty of an iris flower.

“Iris (Alizes)” by Aaron Shikler showcases a singular iris bloom in exquisite detail, set against a muted background that accentuates the flower’s delicate hues. The painting exhibits the iris with a luminous and soft quality, the petals displaying a range of whites, purples, and violets with subtle shading that imparts a three-dimensional appearance. A striking feature of the painting is the contrast between the soft texture of the petals and the velvety darkness of the flower’s center, where a hint of a vibrant yellow and rich maroon peek out. The bloom appears to be gently lit from an undefined source, highlighting the intricate veins and soft edges of the flower’s elaborate form. The artist’s use of diffused light contributes to the serene and contemplative atmosphere of the piece, allowing viewers to admire the natural elegance and transient beauty of the iris flower. The artwork embodies the essence of New Realism by presenting an everyday subject with an air of sophistication and a keen observation of detail, imbuing the flower with a sense of transcendent beauty and realism.
