About this painting
This painting was inspired by a competition to paint British plant-life. Ivy is a parasitic plant and not a symbiote. That notion is explored here, and as such the painting represents the loss of freedom by force.

The alien looking plant fits into a landscape from the planet Mars, its smooth green tones complimenting the cracked desolate desert. The perfectly rendered yellow and violet flesh tones hold their own against the unusual salmon pink of the Martian sky.
