Passiflora Brugs | Liberty

This is a combined piece where one half was created from a photo of a white brugmansia and the other from a photo of a passiflora blossom. I took both photos in our moon garden and I was not liking where each of the separate pieces were going, so I decided to combine the two of them and created something more unexpected and unique. For some reason it gave me the impression of early America, of celebrations of freedom, of aspirations of liberty and justice for all. According to Wikipedia, the term Liberty has several meanings… Liberty, in philosophy, involves free will as contrasted with determinism. In politics, liberty consists of the social and political freedoms enjoyed by all citizens. In theology, liberty is freedom from the bondage of sin. I can sense elements of each of these in this piece, hence the name.
