Fallen Flowers (still image)
A still from the same sequence as Self Portrait, Imran Qureshi captures in a moment the lush exuberance of a blanket of fallen flowers that the autumnal breeze has unceremoniously spread across the gardens, as though having sprouted from the earth itself. As exotic bursts of colour the reddened cydonia flower that multiplies over the seasons from the ageing Bombax or Silk-Cotton tree, is emblematic of the earthly environment that informs the artist's palette. Striking for its unsolicited beauty Fallen Flowers radiates with a heady mix of early morning light, carpeted colour, and enveloping warmth. An intoxicating scene that surrounds the artist’s studio; Qureshi’s creativity is as positively inspired by the anatomy of nature, as it is nurtured by the city beyond his walls.
