"Chrysanthemum for Courage"
by Kristi Bridgeman
The artist has had a lifelong fascination with bird and flower brush painting and the gorgeous intricate cloissoné designs of eastern cultures. During research for a recent book project, Kristi was inspired to create a piece based on The Four Gentleman – a theme in artwork from China, Japan and Korea. A metaphor for unfolding seasons, traits of specific plants, and traditional virtues.
Plum for Resilience and perseverance
Bamboo for Flexibility and integrity
Orchid for Humility and beauty
Chrysanthemum for Courage in adversity
