Persephone's Garden explores the interconnectivity 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; an exploration of the incomparable elegance and chaos of nature.
