Helen Heywood’s paintings of native flora capture their extraordinary beauty in dramatic detail. Building on still life tradition, Heywood’s scenes are depicted in striking realism while revealing a controlled simplicity of composition and arrangement. Whether depicting the flourishing bounty of a new blossom or the delicate underside of an ageing arrangement, Heywood’s paintings speak to hope, resilience, growth and transition.
