Botanical Gestures

Katherine Farris and Louise Oborne

May 12 to June 14
In humans, gestures are a form of non-verbal communication in which body movements send messages or express moods. These non-verbal behaviours are often eloquent and poignant ways to communicate states of being or emotion. Plants, particularly flowers, have long enhanced our social connections and health. The simple gesture of giving flowers can be a compelling expression of joy, grief, thankfulness, remembrance, condolence, love.

In Botanical Gestures, Katherine and Louise use the �gesture� of painting to explore the synchronicity between what we seek to express with plants and flowers and the responses they elicit. There is generosity in this gesture that triggers deeply rooted responses, elevating mood, strengthening relationships, engaging memory. We associate plants and flowers with beauty, fragility, exuberance, tenaciousness, vibrancy, restraint, extravagance, simplicity, complexity―a spectrum of qualities we display in living and dying.
