About The Artwork

Gallery wrapped, painted edges. (See detailed photographs) Signed on the reverse, ready to hang. This painting can be hung unframed, if you want to frame it we recommend a contemporary wooden tray frame. About the Painting Naiad and it's sister piece Dryad is from the artist’s Translations collection - These are very direct intuitive paintings celebrating the beauty in everyday experiences. The feeling of cool water on your skin, the unfurling of a leaf or flower or the sound of birdsong. Each painting in this collection seeks to bring a sense of wonder to the viewer. Dryad takes its title from mythology, this oil painting and its companion piece Naiad are both connected to nymphs from Greek mythology. This connects to the artist's family history as her mother was a religion and philosophy teacher so Genevieve Leavold grew up surrounded by stories and myths from all over the world. The Naiad and Dryad are the embodiment of the spirit of the Water and Trees respectively. As a child she believed that these were real creatures that you could see in the movement of the leaves and spray from the water. The words grew to represent the sounds and sense of being in nature, the vibrancy and mystery of it. Dryad has a cool flow of water of river, there is a depth and coolness in the tones, the form slip and slide into each other and merge. “In these paintings I wanted to capture this sense of aliveness that exists outside of our knowing self, it’s a felt response to the wonders of the natural world.” Your painting will be carefully wrapped and shipped via courier directly from the artist’s studio with a certificate of authenticity.
