Beauty and the Beast



Title: Beauty and the Beast

Size: 100 x 100 cm

Technique: Acrylic on canvas

The ‘beauty’ is the landscape with the smooth curves and the beautiful colours of the cacti against that. The ‘beast’ refers to the sharp thorns on the cacti which I interpret as being the protectors of the land they inhabit.
The cacti are so sculptural and succulent and it intrigues me how little they need to live on.
