Michelle Endersby Creates Portraits of Beauty, Hope, and Inspiration

| May 22, 2015

The flower portraits of Australian painter Michelle Endersby are inspired by a vision the artist experienced upon awakening from a coma following emergency brain surgery.

Each image is far more than a figurative representation of a flower – in truth, these works explore the varying personalities and forms of roses throughout each phase of their natural lifecycle. Endersby’s masterful use of light and shadow not only helps define the overall composition but also adds a depth of meaning and an emotive element to the overall effect.

Each of her paintings is created on a round canvas, meant to symbolize wholeness, the cycle of life, and the mystery of eternity. However, Endersby’s roses go beyond a representation of love, beauty, and sacred divinity; they serve as an invitation to the viewer to take a moment and contemplate the sacred. As Endersby explains, “I hope my paintings will inspire an awakening in others, as I feel I have been entrusted with a mission to share a vision of beauty, hope, and inspiration with the world.”
