Artists statement

Through her solo exhibition, Georgia Michaelides Saad aims to explore the natural forms; the flowers in particular.  According to the artist, the flowers are a representation of the microcosm in relation to the macrocosm, the finite as expressive of the infinite. Flowers have also been associated with a long-standing tradition which connects them to female sexuality as many of them resemble in form the female genitalia. This association has been given to her flowers as well.  Although, through her artworks she illustrates flowers with great detail and through an enlarged view point of them. Through this method, the artist aims to transmit the feeling of awe and mystery, which she has experienced before, even from the minutest forms of nature.
