Secretum Hortus by Georgia Michaelides Saad

Cyprus : Secretum Hortus by Georgia Michaelides Saad

“My primary theme is the exploration of natural forms, in particular, flowers. Flowers to me are representative of the microcosm in relation to the macrocosm, the finite as expressive of the infinite. I use the form of the flower as a fragment to imply that it is part of something which extends beyond the borders of the frame, which transcends the frame and attempts to evoke the infinite. I paint the flower in great detail and I enlarge it so as to transmit the feeling of awe which I experience before even the minutest form of nature.”

Georgia Saad Michaelides was born in Limassol, Cyprus. She lived in South Africa from 1968 to 1996 when she returned to Cyprus where she has been living since. She studied Fine Arts (BA Honours, 1972- 1976) at the University of the Witwatersrand, Johannesburg, later obtained a Higher Diploma in Education at the same university (1977) and a Fine Arts MA in painting (1990 – 1996) at the University of South Africa, Pretoria. She was awarded the Robin Aldwinckle Merit Bursary at the University of South Africa in 1994. She will be taking an MA in History and Theory of Art at the Cyprus University of Technology, for the academic year 2018- 2019.
