Abby Lee - Summer Breeze
I am a self trained artist currently living in Geelong, Vic. The still-life series is my first attempt of symbolising the connection I have to my family home and the calm grounded feeling I get with family. Native Australian florals have always been a centre point of the family table, a place we meet and on special occasions they are a symbol of remembrance. I grew up in regional Victoria and I've always felt a relieving connection with native plants, from their beauty to the rich smell. The negative space and flat colours create a sense of stillness and ease within each piece. A gentle, slow pace - the homely feeling that I love.
