'Lily' is an expression of what it means to be human; a joyous celebration of a moment of tranquility captured.
It was painted as part of a series of paintings during the Covid-19 South African Lockdown, that reflect on the sense of self and celebrating our human existence. The painting is also a bit of a nod to Ophelia's death scene, but rather than being dragged down by heavy garments, lily is floating (like looming death; enjoying life can tap into a heightened state of self-awarenes) - the song is playing in her and Lily is one with her existence - a serene moment that celebrates the complex yet simple act of just being with all of yourself. It is painted in an impressionistic style to capture the vibrancy and life in the moment as well as the material itself (Oils/colours) - infusing the moment into the medium.
