PARABLE OF THE TULIP PAINTER AND THE FLY

by Charlotte PRYCE
2008 / 16mm / color / silent / 1S / 3' 50




An intoxicating flower; a metaphorical insect; a longing reach across the centuries. The film is a philosophical search drenched in luminous colors and sparkling light.
(having grown the beautiful tulip I fell deeply under its spell- an affliction shared by an artist from another time and place- yet the dilemma we faced was shared: to fall for such luxurious and temporary beauty raised a fear (a reminder – a fly) of the transience of life).
