“How does Azzopardi choose her topics? “I don’t choose them,” she says. “Really they choose me. I am inspired by everything I see and hear.”
Azzopardi is seductive with a non-threatening touch – it is fantasy, in a non-threatening way, like being comfortable with your G.B.F. (Gay Best Friend) discussing your bra size.
Provocative, flirtatious and wonderfully highlighted by playful titles, Azzopardi’s narratives interlink one painting to her next as the story progresses with messages of love and the stories of many. Juxtaposing lines of comic-book text with saucy images within a snap-shot canvas, Azzopardi paints all that you dare to fantasise about.” Estelle Lovatt

This wonderful curation had been made by women – with women – for everyone to appreciate and enjoy. An initiative supporting women artists was more than timely and important as the pandemic affected women disproportionally more than men.

With the health of the whole nation under threat, all we need is a little #Balance. Thank you, w1curates.
Strength, power and protection – is what she is purposely symbolising by placing her hands gently together. Her eyes are closed, displaying her thick fringed eyelashes and letting others know that she is emitting a unique harmony internally and externally. She is surrounded by an unmistakable gradient of Klein Blue which is radiating a sense of boundlessness and tranquillity. This aura is carefully contrasted by her bouncy, vibrant and energetic blond hair. Combined together, these are the perfect elements to trigger a visually stimulating and exciting experience. All these poignant aspects portray the perfect ‘Balance’ which encourages a moment of stillness and reflection in whoever may be viewing. Text: Luisa Manillo
Inspired by Conservation International’s film ‘Mother Nature’, Deborah explains… “A strongly placed female hand lays open whilst delicate but perfect Red Rose petals fall gently into it representing love. The same hand is simultaneously birthing a large blue tsunami of water giving life, and feeding essential nutrients into the planet that we are lucky enough to call home. The mountains are juxtaposed with two white Calla Lily’s representing peace – beautiful, fragile, and exquisite flowers standing tall, cushioned by their vivid emerald green leaves. All are a sentiment to the purity of life and the beauty that is vigorous with undeniable fragility which ‘Mother Nature’ holds in the palm of her hand. She is the force that makes the wind sing, she is the essence that makes your senses ignite. She is dusk, she is dawn, she is everything you know. She is ‘Mother Nature’.”
Conservation International’s mission is to protect the nature we can’t live without. In 30 countries around the world, they use science, policy and partnerships to solve the most pressing challenges facing our forests, rivers, oceans and other at-risk ecosystems — our greatest allies in confronting and curbing climate change. www.conservation.org
