'Blossom' combines nature and human curios to stunning effect: a rabbit appears at home on a vintage stool posed in front of rich wallpaper.
This original oil painting by artist Heather Denison showcases Heather's use of realism and the surreal. The wallpaper background has been inspired by William Morris designs while the rabbit appears to have stepped straight out of the woods.
Dimensions: 300mm (dia)
Heather Denison is a full time artist who works from her studio in the countryside of Hawkes Bay.
Born in Zimbabwe, Heather spent her early years working as a graphic designer, but it was her love of wildlife that lead her to a career as an artist. Since her move to New Zealand in 2003, the focus of her work has changed from the wild animals of Africa to the wildlife and gardens surrounding her rural property.
Heather has won awards for her bird and botanical artwork and has paintings held in private collections in New Zealand and overseas. “My inspiration comes, mostly, from the connection between the natural world and the human element. In my still life paintings, the blend of past and present; man-made items combined with the creatures that inhabit the landscape echo that delicate balance. In all my work, I strive to capture the emotion, atmosphere and beauty of my subject matter.”
