DescriptionThe anemone's name is derived from the Greek anemos, the wind, because its delicate flowers appear to open in a gentle spring breeze and because its blossom is so short-lived, like a breath of wind. For these reasons, the anemone has become a symbol of transitoriness. The flowers came to be associated with the Greek lovers Aphrodite and Adonis, and so became a symbol of suffering and death. They developed from the tears of a devoted Aphrodite mourning the death of her beloved Adonis. The flowers were also seen as a symbol of rapidly-fading youth. The anemones that arose from Aphrodite's tears became a symbol of a woman's quick-drying tears--Aphrodite is said to have recovered swiftly from her lover's death. This is why anemones came to be seen as a symbol of endangered or ephemeral love.-- The Language of Flowers, Marina Heilmeyer
Dawn LeBlanc, Edmonton, Alberta Member Since June 2008 Artist Statement
A graphic designer by trade, Dawn is a semi-professional photographer whose images are held in private collections throughout North America and Europe. Her images have appeared in national publications, books, and newspapers. A latecomer to photography, Dawn began a journey with her camera that immediately engaged, captivated and consumed her. The photographs that have materialized reflect her admiration of nature as she looks at underlying forms, shapes and colour, seeking to strip away distracting detail and discover the play of light and shadow that can make the ordinary extraordinary. She hopes that in presenting things the way she does, others might also recognize and share in the simple solace and beauty of the natural world.
