Trinity Flowers 200/15
200/15 Paul Hilditch
The Trinity Flower by Juliana Horatia Ewing (1893): "It was about the size of Herb Paris, my son," replied the hermit. "But instead of being fourfold every way, it numbered the mystic Three. Every part was threefold. The leaves were three, the petals three, the sepals three. The flower was snow-white.√¢‚Ç¨¬ù
The architecture of each distant church in Paul Hilditch√¢‚Ç¨‚Ñ¢s Trinity Flower comes not from any specific building or denomination, but has grown from a desire within the designer to harness his living memories of many churches into something more than a physical object with the creative element flourishing. The sacred Trinity flower, married to a trilogy of rural church scenes against a soft golden yellow ground, is designed to open a door into a tranquil haven. The use of the yellow ground is no artistic accident, and is perhaps summed up best by the words of Pablo Picasso, √¢‚Ç¨≈ìThere are painters who transform the sun to a yellow spot, but there are others who, with the help of their art and their intelligence, transfer a yellow spot into the sun."
