Beth Louella – Surpasses All

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

‘Surpasses All’ (original artwork 50cm x 100cm, paint and embellishment on canvas) explores spiritual peace and comfort in times of anguish. I have experienced peace and comfort like this in particularly tough times, such as bereavement through suicide. It is difficult to depict the unseen but it’s something I often try to do in my artwork. The woman is holding a plant in her bleeding hand, the wind blows her hair obscuring her face and flame like brush strokes rise in the background suggesting hardship and pain. Despite this, the woman exudes peace and calm through her glowing skin, the ethereal gold, her relaxed closed eyes and outstretched hand on her chest. The plant in her hand is olive blossom which is a symbol of peace.
