Orchids have always symbolised beauty, romance and elegance. My Orchid paintings depict these natural subjects that represent notions of attractiveness, while tapping into the role of passive seduction. There is a play between what orchids stand for (as exotic objects of aesthetic sensuality), compared to the underlying sexual associations tied to their use in the social context. They stand for symbols of love and affection, while hinting at undercurrents of lust and persuasiveness.
While the use of Sacred Geometry symbolism reflects the intrinsic beauty found within the flowers themselves on a 'hidden' molecular level, over and above any imposed connotations that humans associate with such objects.
