Cherry Blossom Girl is an allegorical painting depicting a stylish model seated in a comfortable armchair surrounded by petals. This fairytale like fantasy represents the beauty of life and its fragility; symbolised by the cherry blossom. The owl is emblematic of wisdom and intuitive knowledge and the baby deer mirrors the gracefulness of the female protagonist.
Working predominantly from photographs and magazines, Anika Manuel's subject matter focuses on people, depicting them sometimes as a form of social commentary, other times presenting them exactly as they are, for the viewer to imbue with their own ideas. Recycling imagery is important to her general concerns, as there already exist so many undervalued images which haven’t yet been fully explored.
