Hashimoto Contemporary is pleased to present Lush, a group show curated by Jennifer Rizzo. The exhibition brings together a group of over thirty artists from around the globe who have drawn inspiration from one of the most prominent muses of all times - the flowering species.
Throughout history, florals can ben found represented in art from all cultures and regions, as well as a source of inspiration within various artistic movements. With over 400,000 known plant species, artists have long looked to this endless array of specimens, utilizing them to convey a universal symbol of beauty as well as a spectrum of human emotion. By doing so, artists are able to imbue the delicately stemmed floral with great emotional heft.
Lush spotlights contemporary artists once again looking to the timeless floral muse, from Karen Lederer's soothing moments captured within quietly painted scenes, to Jeremiah Jenkins' lead flowers emerging from bullet casings to Anna Valdez's maximalist still lifes, the exhibition surveys a modern approach to a classic subject.
The gallery will be open by appointment only. In order to ensure the health and safety of visitors and staff, please note that masks are legally required for entry. To schedule an appointment, please click HERE.
For the exhibition, the gallery has teamed up with garden design company Primrose Designs NYC, led by Kris & Elena Nuzzi, who created the botanical installation within the gallery space.
The exhibition will be on view Saturday, January 16th to Saturday, February 6th. For more information, additional images, or exclusive content, please email NYC Director, Jennifer Rizzo, at firstname.lastname@example.org
