Zizi’s beautiful but sinister paintings surround and conceal female forms and faces with overgrown organic shapes and twisting webs of colour. Comparing the reproductive phases in plants to the female life cycle of humans, the process of seed-flower-fruit mirrors the transition from girl into woman. Loss of innocence grows into the cynicism of maturity while erotic desire and sensuality become tinged with a quiet predatory danger.
