Finding Eden delves into the realms of imagination, art and nature.
Through nurturing her own gardens and exploring the environment around her, Alicia has been captivated by the myriad of shapes, colours and patterns that exist within the natural world of flowers and their surrounding landscapes.
Using Floral motifs and organic forms in vibrant colour palettes, each painting is an arrangement of tessellating and intriguing shapes and patterns. The rhythmic cadence of each composition intends to convey the vivaciousness, vitality and movement that saturate the tapestry of the natural world. In this liminal space, nature is woven into the fabric of creative expression.
Finding Eden celebrates the joyous spectacle of life's exuberance, awakening the imagination and dissolving the boundaries between art and nature. It is an invitation to explore the coexistence between the world that flourishes around us and the sanctuary we can nurture within ourselves in nature's embrace.
