La Vie en Rose
February 5, 2022 - March 19, 2022
In using flowers as a subject, the artists present each bespoke work as a congratulatory gesture while exploring historical meanings and personal relevance of the efflorescence. Of the many artistic, historical, and emotional meanings and symbols of flowers, La Vie en Rose contemplates the beauty of and the idea of coming back to life.
“In our 10th year, I envisioned flowers to present a resistance and a reclamation of beauty and joy in this new departure. They symbolize the purity and passion, the flowers from the artists are an offering, an antidote, a hopeful reminder of the fragility of life. The result is breathtaking, a collection of flower arrangements reflecting the artist own signature,” states Mariane Ibrahim.
