"Eleven" by June Stratton is a captivating three-dimensional artwork that celebrates nature's resilience through a compelling composition. At the forefront of the piece stands a young woman, gracefully holding a luminous blue-green orb overhead. This central element symbolizes the nurturing force of nature, showcasing its ability to sustain and renew life.
Within the orb, a solitary acorn sapling emerges, representing the potential for growth and regeneration. The focus on this small but powerful symbol underscores nature's capacity to rebound and flourish even in challenging circumstances. June Stratton's meticulous attention to detail brings the sapling to life, emphasizing the delicate balance between fragility and strength inherent in the natural world.
Adding an additional layer of symbolism, jasmine vines, sourced from June's own front yard, are intricately entwined around the model's body. These vines, cast in tuf-stone and meticulously painted to resemble the actual jasmine, represent Earth and its interconnectedness with the human experience. The use of jasmine as a motif reinforces the fragrant beauty and resilience of the environment, while also drawing a personal connection to the artist's immediate surroundings.
Crafted with a combination of oil paint, cotton, tuf-stone, and 23K gold leaf on panel, "Eleven" showcases June Stratton's mastery in blending diverse materials to convey her artistic vision. The inclusion of gold leaf adds a touch of opulence and reverence to the portrayal, highlighting the preciousness of nature and the need to recognize and protect its intrinsic value.
In "Eleven," June Stratton invites viewers to reflect on the cyclical nature of life and the enduring resilience of the natural world. Through her skillful use of symbolism and multidimensional elements, she prompts contemplation on the interconnected relationship between humanity and the environment, ultimately conveying a message of hope and reverence for the beauty that surrounds us.

“My work represents many of my emotions that I have had in the past or are feeling in the moment from a woman’s perspective. It is my hope that collectors who view my works see the implied narrative in both the painted parts, the three-dimensional gilded symbols and feel as if they have been transported to another world.” June Stratton
