LEARN THE FLOWERS
Gabryel Harrison
Winsor Gallery, May 10 – June 3, 2012
Opening Reception: May 10th, 6-8pm

Harrison observes flowers to be a symbol of “humanity’s fragile transience and our increasingly disembodied relation to the physical world.”… Like youth, fame, wealth or love, the loveliness of Harrison’s roses are fleeting. Recognizing their ephemeral nature, she presents her floral subjects dramatically past their prime, their outer petals releasing a final exhale. Bursting past full bloom, the roses are often exaggerated by heavy drips of paint. Sensual and bold, we see this imagery as a constant theme in Harrison’s work, one the artist herself has described as “a final erotic declaration of passion.”

– Pennylane Shen, 2012
