Black is a theme in the artwork because Amy used the term black in her music – inferring a state of being. Each of the 27 roses symbolize a year of Amy’s life.
Jurik Designs http://www.jurikdesigns.com is pleased to announce the release of their newest art print depicting the late Amy Winehouse. Art prints of “27 Roses” are now available to the public as a fundraiser for the Amy Winehouse Foundation.
A framed giclee art print of “27 Roses” will be a prize at the Amy Winehouse Foundation Ball at the Dorchester Hotel in London on November 20, 2012.
“The Amy Winehouse Foundationhttp://www.amywinehousefoundation.org/ has been set up in Amy’s memory to prevent the effects of drug and alcohol misuse on young people. The Foundation also works to support, inform and inspire vulnerable and disadvantaged young people to help them reach their full potential. Under which they focus on the three core areas of: Inform and educate young people about the effects of drugs and alcohol misuse; Provide support for those most vulnerable, those at high risk of misuse or disadvantaged through circumstance; Support and develop music provision for young people.” Of the “27 Roses” art prints the Foundation said “We would like to thank Jurik Designs for supporting the Amy Winehouse Foundation and hope the beautiful print is a huge success.”
The original artworkhttp://www.peterjurik.com/gallery/index_amy.php is a pencil drawing that captures Amy in an elegant pose with her eyes fixed upon the viewer. Black is a central theme in the artwork because Amy used the term black in her music, and in particular, inferring a state of being. Included in the image are sections of several iconic musical scores including “Rehab”, “Back To Black”, “Tears Dry On Their Own” and “Love Is A Losing Game.” A signature style of Amy’s was to wear a rose in her hair, so roses intertwine between Amy and her music across the background. Each of the 27 roses symbolize a year of Amy’s life. A moving video of the artwork highlights the symbolism between the image and the lyrics.
After hearing the sad and tragic news of Amy’s sudden and unexpected passing, Jurik Designs wanted to create an image in honor of Amy. “It’s very sad and heart breaking to hear of losses such as Amy’s,” said Jurik Designs. “Our hope is that the artwork will celebrate her life and remind us of how uncertain and fragile life can be.
Sadly, Amy is missed by millions of people all over the world for her musical talent and contributions; but she is also missed as a daughter, sister, family member and friend.”
