Yin Rising

Acrylic, 2018

This portrait of a landscape expresses the human connection to nature and particularly the feminine in nature. At the center of the piece the beautiful Magnolia flowering, representing purity, nobility, perseverance, dignity and a love of nature. A shadowy figure that blends human and nature using tree symbolism. The painting expresses many things about our connection to nature and many elements and symbols are hidden within the painting. The abstract forms created by the colours of the background create many shapes, that add to the overall narrative of the piece. A painting that holds something new to discover each day, there are many layers to this piece.
