The Arum Lily painting followed hot on the heels of the Pink Peony. The white against black contrast is striking and will definitely be a focal point of any room. The artwork has been painted in a semi-photorealistic style to capture the delicate nature of these flowers.
The collection was inspired by the anti-fragility of these botanical beauties as they re-emerge after New England's harsh winters. These delicate flower's ability to come back stronger and brighter each year is a reminder that our challenges make us better, not worse. The original paintings also incorporated my poetry on the sides of the stretched canvas. A single poem was divided across multiple pieces so only a handful of lucky collectors would be able to assemble the poem. My curiosity about our apparent separation from our core nature drives the work. Starting with the question of what separates us from our authentic selves, the work encourages us to explore our connectedness to each other and to the world at large.
