Maggie SimonelliEve's Garden, Lime green Encaustic, 24 kt gold leaf, aluminum leaf, eye shadow, lipstick, pigments and bee pollen on floating birch panel 24" x 68" (sold)
Simonelli creates her own garden in her series "Eve’s Garden".
"Eve's Garden is the primordial flower garden in all its beauty, power and fragility, the idea being that planet Earth is the Garden of Eden.
Humans began to farm the garden for survival and the beauty of the original garden was lost. Women historically have spent all of history cultivating the garden back to its original splendor. That is what I’m trying to achieve with these paintings, Eve’s Garden."
