“No two leaves were alike and yet there is no antagonism between them or between the branches on which they grow.” - Mahatma Gandhi Between the Branches is a series of new works within the Liberté collection. Inspired by the quote "La liberté est un état d'esprit" which means "Freedom is a State of Mind. This series draws from the energy of being free and the power to act as one pleases. I connect the season of spring with this sense of being free and the botanical references to colour and form echo this. This particular series “Between the Branches” was created reflecting upon the protective and healing qualities of the Eucalyptus flower and this above quote by Gandhi. We often choose unconsciously to close our minds trapping ourselves in our own self made prisons. In escaping our focus must turn from the that of comparison to one of trusting our own innate wisdom and intuition found in the quiet space between thoughts.
