Original painting ‘Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil by Sarah Abbott.
Acrylic on canvas board, framed
This artwork comes with an external frame.
These flowers were unknowingly plucked by my 3 year old from a memorial garden. dedicated to the families of Australian Soldiers.
Being from a military family I know too well the plight of those supporting people in the services, and how both the best and the worst of humanity comes to the fore. On one side you have the noble ideals of sacrifice, selflessness, comradeship, community and bravery. on the other you have the brutal reality of war and conflict; death, suffering, anguish, isolation. I think the Rose is a fitting flower to embody these ideals. A beautiful bloom, with sharp thorns. You can’t have one without the other. Midnight references the deep blues of this work, and the garden of good and evil, for where those roses were found.
This work is supplied framed in a beautiful raw Tasmanian oak float frame. Please note the frame is not removable.
