Amaryllis
OIL ON CANVAS. ORIGINAL SIZE 40x21 in

  • The Amaryllis bulb appears as a symbol of paradise and of space enclosed, protected, private.
  • Paradise, the Garden of Eden, is shut away from the outside world, hidden from prying eyes.
  • Shrouded in the semi-darkness of the soil, the seed of love between man and woman germinates.

Time passes and an offshoot of love turns into a beautiful flower, spreading its petals outward to the blue sky. Growing, stretching, becoming more than its origin.

Red, the color of passion, love, and vitality, spills over into the shining surroundings.
