“Illusion” by Heather Denison is an exclusive original* oil painting on stretched canvas, ready to hang.

“I have realized that the past and future are real illusions, that they exist in the present, which is what there is and all there is.”― Alan Wilson Watts

The Great Heron excudes a graceful energy of peace and serenity as he holds the thinnest of threads in his beak with a small pearl at the end of the line. An illusion or invisible thread is a very thin monofilament used by magicians to make small, lightweight objects seem to levitate and animate. We can only guess at the mystery of what Heron might be attempting by creating an almost floating pearl... and the answer could be suggested in the design of the vase.

Artist Bio

Originally from Zimbabwe Heather Denison is a full time artist working from her studio in the countryside of Hawkes Bay. Since her move to New Zealand in 2003, the focus of her work has changed from the wild animals of Africa to the wildlife and gardens surrounding her rural property. Heather has won awards for her bird and botanical artwork and has paintings held in private collections in New Zealand and Overseas.

“My inspiration comes, mostly, from the connection between the natural world and the human element. In my still life paintings, the blend of past and present; man-made items combined with the creatures that inhabit the landscape echo that delicate balance. In all my work, I strive to capture the emotion, atmosphere and beauty of my subject matter.”
