Exploring abstraction and the subtle layering of whites, this elegant piece by Christian Enns is a major departure from his beautiful plein air landscapes, though the landscape form does reveal itself in the piece. Christian is an award-winning surfer who captures the energy of Hawaii in all his works. They grace private collections around the globe.
Cyanea macrostegia is known formerly from Lāna`i but now found only on Maui. Dark velvet purple-black curved flowers emerge from this rain forest tree. The nectar of these unusual flowers and the orange berries are food for Hawaiian forest birds. These palm-like trees with paddle-shaped leaves are evocative of a pre-historic jungle. The species is now only found in a healthy and diverse rain-forest. Lobelioids are one of the most spectacular examples of island evolution in flowering plants with curved flowers matching the bill of their bird pollinators. - Melissa Chimera
