Wikipedia has interpreted Language of flowers as Floriography. This is where we got our title for our exhibitions which focuses on floral and botanical elements. I am sharing this exhibitions with two other talented women artists of Florence, Al. Nadene Mairesse and Eve Styles. Each of us will interpret the floral theme into our own manner. Our exhibition, titled “Floriography in 3 Translations”, opens on September 4th, and will run through September 24th, 2018 at Kennedy Douglas Art Center. We will host a gallery talk on September, 6th at 6 pm.
Last year I devoted myself in working on 2-D work in oil, acrylic and encaustic paintings on various surfaces. So this year for this exhibition I picked up stoneware clay to interpret “Floriography”
“Observing nature with upmost gratitude is a form of a prayer,” my grandfather would quote, the words of Tagore’s, as we sat watching sun go down over flatland of Central Texas. Those words became my mantra, hence my love affair with nature begun. Clay and paint are two of my favorite mediums to express the narrative of my heart, the work in this exhibition are my prayer offerings.
