Before The Wind

Paintings

Finalist

Acrylic on canvas, 140x170cm

The power of nature is as subversive as it is static, revelling in illusionary dichotomies, mocking what we see and what we know. Laden with blossom before the wind, stripped bare after to reveal an orchard, not what I thought to be one very large old blossom tree. Nature has a way of letting you laugh at yourself.
