Flores
By Claribel Cone

Claribel Cone, Introduction: "These flowers all found me in Mexico; they called to me with their red bells and confetti spikes. The Aztec poet king, Nezahualcoyotl, planted the same kinds of flowers in his gardens in the 15th century.

"This Flores subject led to a strange convergence of Chinese and Mexican painting approaches and the titles contain the ancient Nahuatl names as well as secret codex names of my own making.

"I hope these flowers contain personas and plantscapes."
