I choose five paintings of flowers which symbolize youth. I will put those pictures in the hallway because I want those to be seen by everyone. As flowers get attention with their beauty, the youth of today emerges and attracts attention from people with their desire and encouragement. The paintings are best suit for this college where most immigrants come and study because each picture is a painting of different flowers from different climates which refers the mixture of tradition and culture of students/flowers. The flowers do not think highly of themselves because they know that they will grow, bloom, fade and wither, but they appear to be very cheerful and encouraging like the youth. This show is important because the paintings give the messages to the students that "they are the youth of today and the future of tomorrow," so they should not give up their hope easily. The paintings demonstrate the brightness, hopefulness, strength, encouragement and cheerfulness of the youth.
The second piece I choose is Oriental Poppies (1928) by Georgia O'Keeffe. It is 2D painting. I chose this piece because of its bright color. We can see the glossy red and orange flowers exploding on a canvas almost four feet wide. There is no background to distract from their sheer force of personality. The painting is a vast close-up, pulling the eye into the dark heart of these flowers through the power of scale and color. The color of the flowers represents the enthusiasm and desire. The painting encourages the youth's brightness.
The fourth piece I choose is "Vase with Pink Roses (1890) "by Vincent Van Gogh. The 2D work is a painting oil on canvas. It is a realistic style. Here, instead, is a flower that lacks the brilliant color he relished and which has such symbolic meaning (its pinks have faded to white) but which is just as stupendous: pale roses, incandescent against a light green wall. The flowers are in glorious, exuberant bloom, their furled forms animated by the ribbons of paint behind them. The surface feels still live with the artist's touch. All the roses background by green color in the paintings can make people happy and cheerful.
