FRUIT LOVER, A Visual Odyssey on Fruit features studies on different fruits around the world through watercolors and colored pencil drawings. These studies are an invitation to explore and reinvent our relationship to fruit—nature’s expression of love and abundance. With these works, Silvia Yordanova intends to express her appreciation of the delight they bring to us.
As a lifelong lover of plants, Silvia feels the urge to keep learning and sharing. She is inspired by plants and feels the responsibility to point out their importance, emphasize their beauty and share their inspiration. FRUIT LOVER is her attempt to express this joyful relationship and the gratitude she feels for the unconditional love plants give us on a daily basis.
