Mixed media on paper
47 x 81 cm (18″½ x 31″9/10)

Passiflora coccinea, a climbing plant native to South America, was selected for this stunning commission, in this captivating composition, for its vibrant and distinctive red hue.

With large spaces of untreated paper giving it air and sky, Coccinea is displayed in various stages: unfertilized buds, blooming flowers at various levels of openness, each eagerly awaiting its pollinator. This exhibit captures the intricate dance between the plant and its pollinator, establishing a nurturing and extraordinary connection.
