«Malivani’s deep affinity to nature is also shared with the Pre-Raphaelites, notable through her predilection for painting serene and harmonious figures alongside an abundance of resplendent nature and blossoming flowers; this propensity reflects a philosophical connection with Sir John Everett Millais and John William Waterhouse».

«Diana Malivani. Critical Analysis» by Timothy Warrington, Art Critic, 2019 (International Confederation of Art Critics. Chianciano, Italy)

* * *

For the Artist, flowers represent an inexhaustible source of inspiration. A principal goal of artists depicting flowers is to convey the aroma of a painted flower, its unique «soul». Diana Malivani believes that flowers «grown on canvas» should awaken in the human soul a sense of beauty, an awareness of the unity of all things hidden from us by time.
