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.

In this scene, rather gloomier than what Gordon would have us used to, the fox is offering the viewer the key to escape the grayness of contemporary urban life. The little bough in its mouth represents this exit - the direct gaze of the animal, a personal invitation!
