Hanien Conradie’s words and works put a new spin on “flower-painting” for us.
Her illustrated talk took us through its history and the difference between what would be called flower painting, botanical painting and landscape.
Hanien spoke of her passion for indigenous flora and its protection. She also described the research and thought process leading to her current body of work, which will be presented in November for her Master’s Degree. Her paintings have become more about their meaning for her and the feelings they invoke, rather than the visual image.
Thank you Hanien for sharing your inspiration with us.
