Elaine Kazimierczuk, Cactus and Large Palm, Majorelle Gardens, Morocco
This is a stylized representation of the lush planting of sub-tropical palms and cacti at the Majorelle Gardens in Morocco. Yves Saint-Laurent and Pierre Bergé restored the botanical gardens and lived in the villa there. It is painted on a red-ochre ground to represent the colours of the hot baked earth. In contrast, the exotic foliage of the palms create cool shade. There is a companion piece to this work, a second depiction of the Majorelle Gardens; though not a diptych the two pieces would be ideally hung together.
