Hot Take: In Hamlet- Ophelia gets screwed and deserved better.
Think about it: You chase after a Danish prince for years only for him to call you names and demean you in a mean and careless way. What a jerk. She deserved better.
But this piece takes that narrative and flips it: What if she thrived? What if the wildflowers are not a sign of her insanity, but rather her prosperity?
That’s the idea behind this. The royal purple, the crushed flowers, and dynamic flowing colours- it’s the inspiration behind this. I really enjoyed how this turned out and it’s even better as a dynamic pattern.
