Conversations in a magic pear orchard 1, oil on canvas
Oil on canvas
80 x 30 x 2 cm
This would make a lovely companion to Conversations in a magic pear orchard 2. Like it, it is inspired by the motifs in Persian carpets, and botehs and diamond and wandering vine shapes can be traced in its joyful patterns. The repeat pattern in this painting is a chatty bunch of hanging pears. Within them are wormholes to other places. There are conversations within conversations, stories within stories in this artwork. Conversations between friends in a shady magic pear orchard, or conversations on the rug by a warm fireside. What stories of your own will you bring to the conversation?
