Through the evolving tones of deep blues to rich and radiant bursts of yellows and oranges, this piece portrays the choreography of an awakening flamingo. A movement and moment captured from one of life’s gentle daily events.
From a tucked-in head, to an outstretched neck, we see the rising shift as she awakens from the darkness of night to the brightness of a new day’s light.
About the artist:
As an artist my work is more than portraiture of an animal; instead, my mission is to convey a glimpse, a momentary pause into the life of that being.
My visual palette and poetic narratives draw inspiration from eastern wisdom of the auras and spirit, which reflect our emotional energy and signify our vibrancy of life. This influence is utilised to highlight the unifying force/soul, which resides equally in all beings and transcends the material form.
Through this journey, I explore the deeper connections that run spiritually, emotionally and experientially between all beings.
Through my art I express the lives around us as a part of us; in the same way that we are all part of what Ancient Greek teachings term Gaia: the complex living being that is Mother Earth.
