The story behind the artwork
Overlaying the central section of the iconic Early Italian Renaissance masterpiece, ‘Primavera’ by Botticelli, Kristjana realises a powerful modern interpretation, fusing mythological figures with the faces of resplendent birds. The human mythology of the original painting - Venus, Flora, Zephyrus - is superseded by the triumph of fantastical nature. The enigmatic aura is maintained and elements of Spring (Primavera) are enhanced with the addition of even more flora and fauna; boughs of heavily scented roses tumble in above the crescent neck of a white swan, streaked leaves envelop a pair of loyal dogs and a crested red jungle fowl balances a ticking time piece in its beak. At the centre, a top-hatted classic British gentleman has transmogrified into a wise old owl, fixing the viewer with a knowing look.
