New Painting - Evergreen

Evergreen, by Soraya Bradley

The Australian “Seeded eucalyptus” inspired this garland, symbolising healing and protection. Recently I have been exploring the themes of beauty and fragility …

I love the combination of nature and the feminine. To me, flowers more than anything else symbolise femininity & fragility. This theme is important to me in terms of an individual human life and natures fragile eco-system we live within. 

Traditionally in very old doctrines the female is outside of society, dangerous, wild nature - unpredictable bringer of life.
