Peach Poppy | 6×6″ | oil, resin, gold leaf

Poppies are extremely rich in symbolism, from death to remembrance, this delicate bloom has a sinister side. Is it sinister or is it powerful?

Each small flower in this ongoing series is my nod to the sacred, an echo of religious icons. In their fleeting existence, flowers are a reminder of the impermanence of life and importance of living in the present.

Gold, precious in its scarcity, mirrors the importance of the divine. It isn’t just a color; it’s an illumination, casting a glow that speaks of reverence and transcendence.
