Rooted in ancient art and still prevalent today, depictions of blossoms, blooms, and other botanical elements can be found in many of the most significant art movements. There’s no way you can evade the emotive inspiration that comes from flowers. For centuries, humans have exchanged flowers as an expression of the entire emotional range, from “I love you” to “I’m sorry.” In a sophisticated language of color and form, these works by Greg Murr are ephemeral and emotional, with their poetic symbolism rubbing against the mechanisms of value, history, and trade. The artist will be present for the opening.
Artwork in the exhibition may be viewed here.
Opening reception Friday, February 1, from 5-7 pm.
