A little late for the tea party but the earth laughs anyways
A little late for the tea party but the earth laughs anyways, is about the cycle of life, how it flourishes to come into his own, only to be reborn again. The painting also elaborates on the hint of duality to life’s purpose at different stages; the dried chrysanthemums, although reaching the end of its life cycle, is able to tell the future of the living through the act of tasseomancy (tea leaf reading), a man in wool, his senses blocked (except his sense of hearing), is blinded and unable to express himself, by something as delicate as flowers; a representation of femininity and life. This paradim shift of energies of what once was, no longer is, and through all that, we celebrate the end of each cycle and its purpose, and look forward to the next.
