Inspiration can come from the strangest places, It can also be interpretated in a different way to which it was intended. In the summer of 2022 I visited the masculinity exhibition at the V&A, part of the exhibition was a video of a dancing male. The flow of movement and energy I found mesmerising. This made me to start thinking about energy and flow in more general terms and then specifically within nature. Of course, the intended message from the artwork, was not this. It was my bias and interpretation of the artwork that made me want to research and think about this further. From this research I created the oil painting 'Dance of Nature', where androgenous figures, can be found dancing through flowers (orchids). The human forms are the same colour as the flowers, they are a part of the landscape I have created, emphasising that we are nature, and equal to it. My figures are androgenous because I don't wish to refer to gender but to humanity as a whole and as just another species within nature.
