May 8 - September 27. A painting series by Brandy Kraft
Mankind is destroying the planet. This destruction has made me fascinated with preserving nature. I started with painting flowers- thousands of flowers in all states of life and decay. I wanted to preserve their beauty and prevent their extinction.
Then suddenly in my dreams and in my subconscious I started having visions of new flowers- non-existent flowers. I started painting these strange new hybrids and realized I was creating not only new species of flora but I was building a new world of my own. Flower by flower, petal by petal.
The completely new species of flowers which are familiar yet foreign at the same time, reveal an intriguing and strange beauty. The imagery is compelling in its symbolism as well as its technicality. It playfully encourages the viewers’ imagination and curiously highlights the resiliency and diversity of the worlds’ flowering plants.
Come and explore “Imaginary Flowers” a world of new flora.
