Emerging Adelaide artist, Olympia Antoniadis has completed a Bachelor of Visual Arts, painting at the Victorian College of Arts in 2015. Her most recent works uncover her personal experience with life, death and the grieving process. Olympia uses flowers as symbols and metaphors to explore the traditional genre of ‘Memento mori’ in a contemporary light. Traditionally, a ‘Memento mori’ is an artistic or symbolic reminder of the inevitability of death. The expression ‘memento mori’ developed with the growth of Christianity, which emphasized Heaven, Hell, and salvation of the soul in the afterlife.
