This exhibition by Muriwai artist Kirsten Reid celebrates flowers. Their symbolism and the associations they have in both ancient and modern culture, religion, milestones, sadness, love and in our everyday lives. The way they can provide a way to communicate without words. How they excite, delight, console, placate and give hope and joy with their range of colours, varied structures and scents.

Impressionist style images feature in this work, where details are pared down resulting in soft, fluid images. Close-up photography has also been used to really get into the detail of the flower’s petals, buds and structure etc. Some mixed media and photomontage artworks also feature using photographs, printmaking inks and fabric sometimes tearing, cutting or weaving the paper to add texture and pattern.

A must-see exhibition!

Opening Event - Sunday 22 January 4pm-5:30pm. Come and view the exhibition and have a chat over a glass of wine.
