The title Inflorescence comes from the botanical term for the clustering of leaves and flowers on a plant. This notion of specific grouping and arranging is present in each artists’ practice, either in their research processes, their approaches to composition, or their conceptual frameworks. Each work presents its own interconnected net of information that ensnares viewers and places them in a web of specific colors, shapes, references, and punchlines. The selected works in combination complicate the distinction between generic and personal imagery.
The opening for Inflorescence took place on September 17, 2021 at Heaven Gallery in Chicago, IL. Photo documentation courtesy of Heaven Gallery.
