These works represent imagined and re-envisaged flowers that bear a reference to Irina’s established jewellery creations of pressed flowers: Flowers In Your Hair. There is a breadth of vision and space that hints at middle era tapestry art, two dimensional mythical art and concoctions of dreamed up plants from another planet or of existing in distant time. There is also the direct observation of the here and now planted and stamped on wood.
Born and raised in Estonia, and now living in Australia for a few years, Irina continues to grow as an artist of multiple mediums. Having previously focussed on portraits, this strand of works are reaction and response to the plethora of beauty existent in our gardens and natural environment that many may take for granted. And so things are relative; it is a snowy Narnia for almost half the year in Estonia.
