The Weight of Orchids

In 2014, I was awarded first place at the national NANA Competition at Lucky Street Gallery, Key West, FL and was granted a month long residency at The Studios of Key West. So, I packed my studio and transferred my life to the subtropical beautiful island, in February 2017. 

On the first day I passed a front yard that was abundantly embellished by orchids.

I was immediately put under the spell of those beautiful flowers which were attached to the palm trees' trunks. They resembled swaying gorgeous color dots with a profound sense of vulnerability.

From that day on, I only printed orchids, lush gardens and imaginary spaces. Sanctuaries that have the power to stop time and let you reset.

First timid and delicate, I started to paint the flowers on my aluminum printing plate, only to grow bolder and more colorful with each following print.

It became a roar that changed my color palette and sparked multiple new series in my mind.
