Curator Statement:

When most people think flowers, colours and smells come to mind. With the Georgia O’Keeffe show on at the AGO, my mind wonders about flowers for more than their colours and smells
… to their form, and the inner workings of the petal, stem and stamen
… as a landscape, as a home for my eyes (and for insects).

O’Keeffe looked at everything with a careful meditative eye. She spent the time really seeing their inner depth, grace of form and movement of colour through the petal.

This year’s ‘flower’ show at Neighbourhood is trying to take that closer look at the wonder of this small cosmos we call the flower.
