The meaning behind ‘Pomegranate’ is that the fruit produces the sweetest seeds. The 3 women are embedded into it as if they have been the seeds that bring the best flavor to this fruit. It is a metaphor of life that what we add to it is the legacy we leave behind. By seeing it through infinity and beyond through the life that has been lived.
Beyond the Light
By Susan Burrows
l created this work from an inner strength and called It ‘Beyond the Light’. I rest for a while with my thoughts on the beauty that surrounds us, at peace with these images and life’s journey ahead. Light shimmers at dusk on still waters.

The possibilities within the universe are truly limitless when we think of planet Earth as a tiny speck within the immense galaxy. My painting expresses the theme of To Infinity And Beyond through the concept of a parallel dimension of a place here on Earth where oversized privileged felines are the essence of worship. The minds ability to conjure and create otherworldly deceptions through the perspective of the artist is positively infinite. The small scale work (a4) provokes an atmosphere wherein the audience is encouraged to engage while being immersed within the detail of this bizarrely fantastic scene.
Girl of the Jacaranda

The Jacaranda girl is moving from this life.

Being given a terminal cancer diagnosis 6 years ago changed my life. I had a huge surgery and chemo. I had a strong urge , if I was going to die, I wanted to leave something behind for my family to remember me by. I took up painting the ocean and haven't looked back. The ocean is unstoppable just like me. I was given 6 months to live. That has turned into 6 years and I'm still cancer free. I now look to infinity and beyond!
I work with teenagers as an artist facilitator at a children's hospital. I'm constantly impressed with their resilience, particularly those with chronic conditions. My painting is a collection of experiences presented in a kind of drug induced surreal layering. It's playful, reflecting the black humour that's an ever present sidekick to the serious nature of debilitating illnesses.
