A group exhibition of flower paintings and other media with floral motifs.
In these politically charged times it’s become difficult to look at art without reading into it, being offended, or wondering if someone else will be offended. The polarization that has swept our land and divided us is creeping into art. Even an art genre as cliché and benign as flower paintings is not immune. 
 
But sometimes a flower is just a flower. Rose is a rose is a rose.

Unnatural Life at Emerson-Dorsch

February 10 - March 31, 2017
Opening Reception / Grand Opening:
 Friday, February 10, 2017 6 - 9 PM

EMERSON DORSCH | 5900 NW 2ND AVE | MIAMI, FL 33127
info@emersondorsch.com
305-576-1278

In her exhibition UNNATURAL LIFE, Elisabeth Condon’s luscious paintings layer vivid abstraction and decorative flowers and birds. These paintings seem at first to be pure pleasure, for they revel in color, paint and compositional complexity. Look longer and uneasiness blooms. The symbols depicted within the paintings bear heady and emotional references to feminism, environmental and national politics. Condon manages this with loaded symbols – bird and flower representations culled from decorative fabric patterns in her mother’s home – and by an extraordinary control over paint’s materiality and color and its emotional range. The symbol is a hook calling for a feminist reading of the history of decoration, especially in the United States, and a feminist critique of North American abstract expressionist painting by extension. Erica Ando writes in her essay about UNNATURAL LIFE: “Condon’s paintings permit birds, flowers and decoration to sit alongside expressions of angst and tensity, as well as beauty, as part of women’s, and human, experience.”
