Rachelle Romeo is a London based artist inspired by her experiences, social interactions and surroundings. Rachelle uses  embroidery, print and paint to create work that aims to provoke an emotional response from the viewer. In this particular work she references the symbolic meanings linked to flowers to explore ideas around the female experience of sex, sexual liberation and empowerment.

“Flowers are deemed by society to be a feminine object, an object that is delicate – yet their spiritual meanings show strength and power. Those who identify as women have strength, power and voice; we should be heard. The truth of a woman’s experience regarding their sexual encounters and their role in sex differs from their male counterparts. Once they experience their own sexual liberation and empowerment, they develop an understanding of their own body and their power, knowing it’s ok to enjoy the perfectly natural and beautiful act when they consent.”

Flower meanings:

  • Dahlias – elegance, inner strength, creativity, change, and dignity. One who stands strong in his/her sacred values.
  • Daffodils – rebirth and new beginnings. 
  • Daisies – innocence and purity.
