Arcadia

A bright pink iris centers a whirling circular landscape of plants, flowers, berries, and a bird in flight. Circular compositions like this were commonly used in religious paintings during the Renaissance, especially scenes of the Madonna and Child. The artist uses this shape to express her own relationship to nature, spirituality, and art, leaving her audience to meditate on the image and explore their own feelings.
