Michael Zavros presents a room of still life paintings at the Adelaide Biennial

Michael Zavros' The Phoenix is the centerpiece of his installation of still life paintings in the Adelaide Biennial of Australian Art: Magic Object, which opened this weekend at the Art Gallery of South Australia. The installation includes The Twins, two arrays of flowers that perform (slowly) for viewers. Over a period of days the pure white flowers undergo a transformation, hybridising into exotic strains, tipped and striped with painterly washes of pink and blue.
