Contrasting creative expressions

While Dalley is inspired by her beautiful garden, Ambika takes inspiration from her urban environment. Two contrasting creative styles, unified by flowers!

By Dalley - "Ah! Spring!".  A combination of pine and chrysanthemums in a pair of galvanised steel containers, reminds me of spring.

By Ambika - "Window dressing".  The white of the thermocol is brought to life by colourful dried material, and the rich colours of jerberas and anthuriums.  Reminded me of shop windows of a fashion store.
By Dalley - "Manoharam".  Nature gives us so much beauty in flowers, fruits and leaves.  The Punnai leaves and the jackfruit remind me of Kerala.  The container is a Vietnamese ginger jar.

By Dalley - "Remembering Fukushima".  This Asian Nagiere vase inspired me to recreate a Japanese scene, fresh from my visit this summer.

By Ambika - "New York, New York!"  The black sponge packing material reminded me of the granite buildings and stone plazas of New York, a city that is a symbol of the ingenuity and creative forces that lie within us as much as it is of wealth and consumption  

By Ambika - "Marriage" - A beautiful thing, that allows me to explore and grow and discover myself.

By Ambika - "Ode to the Western Ghats" - Inspired by my visit to the Western Ghats in Goa.
