Original painting by artist Chloë Holt RCA FRSA. From her exhibition “Hiraeth”.

“Hiraeth (Welsh pronunciation: [hɪraɨ̯θ, hiːrai̯θ]) is a Welsh word for longing or nostalgia, an earnest longing or desire. A profound longing for something, especially one's home. A deep and intangible bond felt with a time, era, place or person.

“Hiraeth is in the mountains, in the volcanic rock and at the edges of the sea, it is in the trees and in the turbulent waves. It's where the wind calls, and seasons change - announcing that glimmer of sun waiting to fall on your face, the softening of the skies at dusk, relentless calming rain on the earth, and the arrival of silent snows. It is the pull of Wales, my spiritual home. We are on an Island where a patron Saint still instills hope in lovers hearts. We look upon a small diary bowl which speaks of the inner self. Hiraeth is a link to a forgotten past, the language of the soul.”

"Seed of Winter" is a peaceful and contemplative still life, featuring a small turned wooden dairy bowl and a 17th century onion jar, laying in the foreground are three poppy heads full of seeds sleeping until Summer.
