PERSEPHONE'S GARDEN - SHANNON BELLAMY

PERSEPHONE'S GARDEN - SHANNON BELLAMY

Persephones's Gardner explores the interconnectedness of life and death, new growth and a change of season, and the balance between chaos and serenity in nature. Hypnotised by tiny details, textures and patterns of the natural world, Shannon documents the changing seasons of local bushland and curb-side gardens.

Persephone, Queen of the Underworld and Goddess of Spring, symbolises the death and regeneration of nature and ourselves. A reminder to find balance and accept the ebb and flow.For Shannon it's all about the flowers, which seemingly mimic moments of personal growth, change, love, loss and hope. Each piece is a celebration of discovery, tiny blessings and daily rituals; and an exploration of the incomparable elegance and chaos of nature.

A collection of works by Shannon Bellamy.
