Maria Gordon is a self-taught illustrator and designer based in Madrid. Her work is inspired by European folk art, children’s illustration, and her own vivid and delicate pictorial world. In her work, if highly decorative and pleasing, each figure, fruit and flower carries a meaning or symbolism that changes and deepens the work’s meaning.

This collection of watercolours demonstrates the recurrent themes and imagery in her world of contrasts: where innocence and experience, purity and lust, flora and fauna, city and country settings, all battle while co-existing in a lyrical balance.

The Zoryas or "auroras" are the Slavic personification of dawn, keeper/s of the sun's gate. It is perhaps in the Russian tradition that they are most often represented as two rather than three, or one, virgin sisters. When just two, as in this picture, one is the morning star and the other, the evening star.
