On view at RH gallery from March 2nd through May 31st, the exhibition showcases the regal, pervasive, and occasionally ominous plant life confronted in contemporary art.  Presenting depictions ranging from the cultivated and domestic to what Werner Herzog memorably described as “the harmony of overwhelming and collective murder”, the exhibition demonstrates the ways in which plants function as markers, metaphors and subjects as an anthropocentric world.  Rather than focusing on one particular approach, the exhibition embraces a multiplicity of contemporary artistic practice demonstrating political, art historical and social strata through plant life.
 
Opening reception:
RH Gallery
137 Duane Street
Saturday,  March 2nd,
6-8 pm
