Throughout history, flowers have been regarded as symbols of the beauty and regeneration of nature. The exploration of nature and art can encompass so much inspiration and provide so much beauty to the eye of the beholder. Without the beauty of earth's natural wonders, what would we be? What would art be?
Ancient Mystery teachings illustrated that we are in part a product of our environment, and that beauty is essential to the natural unfoldment of the human soul. There is harmony and peace in the beauty of flowers that lifts and nurtures our spirits. We can be moved to wonder and joy by these gifts of nature. I feel that this is a much-needed haven in the super paced world that surrounds us today.
In this series of paintings, I strive to express this with complex colour changes at each stroke of the brush, with multiple layers, and with dramatic effects of light. The flows of liquid paint that border and surround the image are like the forces of elemental energy and creation.
Flowers reflect the mystery of life in all their glorious, endless variations, and my paintings are a celebration of these jewels of Nature.
