I want to go to work Saturday, I really want to go out to see the spring


Although Lixia has arrived, she still wants to catch the scenery of the spring tail. After reading “Spring is Coming” in one breath, the name of this book is just like an inspiring declaration, especially at this time.

When the epidemic was raging in 2020, David Hocky lived in the countryside of Normani, France. In the suspension and closure of the country, he allowed himself to avoid the madness of the world and also depicting a whole spring.

All these paintings, together with Hocky’s creative stories, stories other than creative, and a large number of talks and communication, were included in this book.

Hocky said that this is the most beautiful spring.

Some of the apple trees, pear trees, cherry trees, and Li trees have some blooming, some have not bloomed, some have only branches, some have germinated, and some leaves appear.

The sun moves on the branches, the shadow of the branches flows in the pond, and the water is flowing itself. In various forms, small water flowers, ponds, rivers or clouds and rain.

Light is the same. The light through the clouds, the light on the water, and the sunrise and sunset that is changing every moment.

The scenery depicted by Hocknie is the whole process from freshness to mature.

It is flowing, time and life

It’s like what happened to us itself.

He kept drawing, always drawing, drawing those eternal changes, drawing those gradually disappearing time, and obsessed with painting.

Hocknie is obsessed with simple and clear lines, bright and saturated colors, especially blue,

This makes his paintings brisk and vitality, full of enthusiasm and longing for the world.

His enthusiasm is extraordinary infectious, especially in the past few years.

After reading “The Spring is Coming”, I think it is not so much like art, and it is more like talking about how to live. Just as Hockney released this group of paintings,

Just simply say: “I love life.”

This sense of life penetrates from every detail of Hockney’s paintings.

Hocknie stared at the environment around him for a long time, studied their rich details, and drew the fleeting and quickly, forming a narrative method that combined with a series of paintings.

This narrative method is not alone in Hockini.


A series of ways to paint the same theme paintings can easily make people remind of Monet. From dawn to the Cathedral of Royn at dusk, from winter to summer haystacks, they are all changing light. Each painting is an enhancement of the previous paintings.

Of course, the most famous Monet’s water lilies and his garden in French Norman.

Monet once said: “I will be a painter, maybe it is given by the flowers.”

When standing in front of Monet’s huge water lilies or iris paintings,

A subtle healing sense will involuntarily overflow from the heart.

It is difficult to say whether this healing is brought about by painting or flowers. Of course, the more likely result may be that the form of the painting enlarge the beauty and cure of the flowers.

Hocknie often sends the works that draws to the friends through text messages. He said, “This way, friends can receive fresh flowers every morning.” The painter knows most about flowers that can bring abundant joy.

Hocky also said: “Good flowers are not often blooming, and there is a deadline for dealing with nature.” The interpretation of flowers with paintings is to interpret and reflect the beauty of the world.

▲ “No. 180”


After reading this series of paintings in Hocky, I consistently in recalling the book, the most moved is the tree flower called “No. 180”. Sky.

Back to “No. 99”, it is still a tree in winter. There are no leaves, no new buds, no flowers, and no flowers.

Regarding the looking back and comparison of Yishuhua, in addition to visual pleasure, it is full of spontaneous romance,

An inspiration to refuse to vitality.

Flowers are always filled with various metaphors. It is the intention of the artists to use it, and the soft emotions that can quickly mobilize the soft emotions in the hearts of people.

▲ “Rose” Van Gogh

The famous French writer Corolt ​​wrote a booklet named “Flower” in his later years, which stems from a little cunning agreement: In 1947, Swiss publisher Melmo proposed to send a bunch of different beams of different bouquets to Corolt ​​regularly Flowers; as a exchange, Kolt wants to depict one of the flowers.


After changing the text, one year later, these texts gathered into this “Flower”.

The sentences of “Flowers” are smart, lightweight, and exquisite, freely, with the sense of freedom of almost rebellion, making people imagine.

She wrote that narcissus is a place where it is neither nor long in winter, running in the front flower of spring; writing roses is not the earliest flower blooming in the flower season, but it is a flawless beauty. Rainbow is the encounter and bright in June.

She wrote a lily alone enough to represent innocence. Writing the dense hidden aroma and crazy night of gardenia flowers, the orchid is full of temptation, wonderful, and the wisteria flowers are clustered and willful.


A kind of flowers look at it, like following the whole spring with the flowering period.

In this spring, with a delicate emotion that wants to heal myself, I also followed the whole spring with the flowering period. Starting from February:



With velvet -like petals with appropriate plumpness;

Small handball


There are branches and leaves that can be called messy, but also with vigorous vitality;


Roman is boneless, like the lustrous folds of European classical girls;

Silver lotus


It has a hot red, like a beautiful fire, which makes people feel happiness.

There are also recent peony, like the beauty of the Tang Dynasty with irresistible enchanting, and gorgeous like a glorious sunset.

Wang Dell said: “A piece of art is as useful as a flower. A flower blooms for its own joy, and we get a moment of joy when watching flowers.”

French aesthetic poet Tyolofel Gotie, who also advocated “useless beauty”, wrote a poem called “Flower Chengchun”, and also used a fourteenth poem to depict a tulip.

Speaking of the Fourteen Elements Poems, the first name we think of is undoubtedly Shakespeare. Shakespeare is very good at using flower and grass narrative as a metaphor,

Some people say that Shakespeare is still a garden master.


It is also said that to understand Shakespeare and take the flowers and plants in his text as the entrance, new insights can be produced, and more and more profound fun can be tapped.

He always referred to these flowers and plants in hand, and used the seemingly irrelevant text to hide the secrets of the development of the plot in the flower language of plants.

This year’s new book “Shakespeare Poems” is an interpretation of Shakespeare’s works from a botanical perspective:


Rose may be love, beauty, dynasty, and danger; chamomile symbolizes energy and humility; laurel is the victory of immortality and war; iris represents faith, bravery and wisdom; the three colors are full of sorrow.

In reading these comments on the metaphor of flowers and plants, I remembered the former famous painting “Orpilia”, one of the treasures of the British Museum of Art Museum, which was exhibited by Pudong Art Museum last year.

Offei is a character in Shakespeare’s pen, Hamlet’s fiancee. Like Shakespeare, the painter Milai used the metaphor of flowers:

The daisy in Offei represents innocence and purity, poppy represents crazy and despair, and Mao symbolizes the impatience and childishness.

I found those poetic flowers and plants like treasure hunting, and I also found those hidden secrets.

Flowers are the most direct expressions of artist emotions.

Van Gogh’s sunflower is hot and direct, Renoi’s silver lotus flowers with slight dizzy warmth, Fang Dan Latur’s roses seem to be drawn throughout their lives.

There are also high flowers, Cezanne’s flowers … flowers, spring, artists, can always be easily linked, with casual poetry.

Thinking of this, after reading these works, I remember the sentence describing peony in “Flower”, and the title of the book Hohkini’s book is:


It can most remind us of the authentic spring, and spring is coming.
