Description of Night Garden
Night Garden original oil on canvas resides in the Jane Lafferty Collection (USA).
Limited edition prints available.
Night Garden is a place we all go within ourselves. Here we choose which thoughts to harvest and nurture. Who we are is very much dependent on which thoughts we nurture more, the negative or the positive.
I was heavily influenced by symbolism growing up as a young adult in Cairo, Egypt. I have created a cache of symbols that I use throughout my work, whether it is the fish shown here representing our souls or the sun-shaped flowers which represent our thoughts and energy.
We are the farmers and must choose our harvest well as it defines us.
