Sylvia Marsters states, ‘the flora of the Pacific maintain significance in my work, they are meaningful, expressive, iconic flowers. Gardenia’s possess spiritual qualities. Bright white flowers against a deep green contrast capture the eye. Like stars in the night sky, complex forms, forcing a moment of meditation, serenity, stillness and calm. Throughout years of unprecedented change, these intimate compositions hold even more significance. Natures perpetual rhythms transcend religion, politics and an ego’s constant chatter, offering an alternative to the dystopian narratives that pervade our world.’
