In celebration of flowers
As blossoms appear amid the cold winter chill it is a sign that the season of spring is just around the corner. At least there will be some art exhibitions to brighten up the cold winter month of August. SALA is the celebration of South Australia's living artists. There is a great program of exhibitions in August, including one that focuses on spring and all things floral.
Anthi is a collection of works by artist Angela Palios featuring acrylic paintings. Angela was born in the region of Macedonia, Northern Greece and migrated to Australia with her family when she was very young. She describes always having an interest in drawing and art work but life intervened and she was unable to spend much time painting until the last few years, when she decided to go back to college to further her art studies.
Angela works mostly with flowers because they make her happy. 'I feel that flowers create positive feelings in people's lives. There are so many exciting and wonderful ways people can express their feelings by sending flowers to the people they love. Flowers have the power to touch the heart of everyone. Without flowers the world would be dull and colourless. I strongly believe that nature has the power to heal'. Angela continues to find inspiration in flowers and explore the different species of flowers and various elements of nature.
