Symbiosis

Every one of us has enjoyed the fresh air brushing past our face, but rarely any of us realise our innate dependency on these moments.

My Body of Work, Symbiosis, aims to immerse the audience in the precious harmony between individuals and the natural environment. The vibrance and energy evoked reveal how this symbiotic relationship assists in creating an ethereal moment for humankind.

Enhancement of the natural features of the subject and foliage is representative of the metaphysical and sometimes supernatural aspects of this relationship, while use of bold, unnatural colours assists in emphasizing its magnificence.

The work also references ‘Primavera’ by Sandro Botticelli, as it encapsulates the ephemeral beauty of youth and our communion with the natural world.
