“I’ve tried to put some of the good things in as well. Flowers, for instance, because where would we be without them?” – Margaret Atwood, The Handmaid’s Tale

Hashimoto Contemporary is pleased to present LUSH, a group show curated by Jennifer Rizzo. Returning for its third iteration, the exhibition delves further into 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 Rachel Gregor’s dreamy figures romantically resting in flower fields, to Casey Gray’s maximal vase exploding with whimsical flowers, Liz Flores’s nudes which blur the line between the figurative and abstract, and Shishi San’s hand-tufted fluffy vase which explores the artist’s cultural legacy, the exhibition surveys a modern approach to a classic subject.

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.
