Artist Talk | Botanical Explorations by Jane Kim
Presented by Andra Norris Gallery
Saturday, April 27 | 1:00pm - 2:00pm
Location: Booth 523
The Rise Home series explores native botanicals of Northern California. Inspired by rhizomes, underground stems that sprout shoots, the title of the series celebrates plants’ tireless journey toward self-realization. Plants take on endless shapes, structures, and colors and these paintings were created in a style evoking vintage botanical illustrations, allowing the artist to focus on each subject’s unique anatomy. Created with an intention to balance the disciplines of fine art and science illustration, each painting has an accuracy and attention to detail that would not be out of place in a field guide, yet is meant to address broader concepts of form, diversity, and interdependence.
