Opening Night : IN FULL BLOOM Group Exhibition

Thu Mar 05, 2020
7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

[RSVP is required – event is limited]

Discover Cuturi Gallery’s latest exhibition: In Full Bloom. A group exhibition that will feature 13 artworks from 13 contemporary artists and will revolve around the relevance and importance of the flower figure in art history. Most of the artists are debuting with the gallery, and hence it will be an excellent opportunity for you to discover new talents in the contemporary art scene. 

Throughout the history of art, flowers have been a favourite subject among artists. Depiction of the flora elements can be found in many of the most significant art movements. For instance, white lilies symbolise the purity and holiness of Virgin Mary during the Renaissance period; the Dutch masters took a more delicate approach to chiaroscuro when depicting flower still life while many Impressionists and Post-Impressionists painted flowers that were personally meaningful to them – just like Van Gogh and his sunflowers.

‘There are always flowers for those who want to see them’, says Henri Mattise, the founder of Fauvism whose blossoms are characterized by pure vivid colours and bold distinctive brushstrokes. Pop Artist Andy Warhol created blocks of timeless and iconic daisies in the 1960s, which are still universally celebrated in the art and fashion world today. From the end of the 20th century onward, Jeff Koons’ 43-foot-tall flower puppy still waits patiently at the Guggenheim Museum in Bilbao. The public statue was created, in Koons’ own words, to share “optimism, confidence and security”.

We invite you to navigate through the gallery space, and see how these very talented artists have interpreted in their own way, the importance of the flower figure in art.
