About the Exhibit - (Nothing but) Flowers
(Nothing but) Flowers is Karma Gallery’s summer show, on view July 30—September 13, 2020, and is not your average group show. Karma goes above and beyond, gathering over 50 artists, who represent some of the most impressive emerging artists of our time.
Seriously, if you don’t know anything about art just pick one artist from this exhibition and they’re a star.
“The artists selected for this exhibition comprise a large swath of friends, collaborators and heroes whose critical work has provided ongoing inspiration” (source)
The exhibit centers around one theme - flowers.
“In this difficult period of pause, many of us have turned toward cultural experiences to find shared comfort, community, and growth. Symbols and traditions are reconsidered and reinvigorated by the context of our troubled times. And there is perhaps no symbol more enduringly vivacious, beautifully somber, and universally beloved than the ubiquitous, sublime flower.” (source)
"The flower persists throughout art history...yet most essentially for the present day, the tending and gifting of flowers is steeped in cultural practice. As balms of solace and support during times of remembrance and growth, blooms connote the sharing of emotion, and are given in sympathy, love, joy, or appreciation." (source)
“(Nothing but) Flowers seeks to illuminate the capacity of the humble botanical motif to capture sorrow, stimulate rehabilitation, and guide us through periods of mourning, celebration, and rebirth.” (source)
