The abundance of life is so often appreciated by walking through a garden or along a forest path. The root stystems of wild orchids, mycorrhizal webs of mushrooms, and climbing tendrils of sweet pea all surge toward the same goal: bloom. A bloom is that profusion of growth and maturity in a plant's cycle that yields velvety petals dusted with pollen, golden clusters of chanterelles, or the bright chartreuse at the edge of a pond. And whether it lasts for an hour or a few days, a bloom might be a plant's most beautiful feature to behold. In this exhibition, four artists observe and imagine this botanical unfolding.
