Blossoms: paintings of flowers

Explorations of flowers found in Joanna’s Toronto neighbourhood.

“To create a little flower is the labour of ages.” William Blake

“A crystal, a flower or a shell stands out from the usual disorder that characterises most perceptible things. They are privileged forms that are more intelligible for the eye, even though more mysterious for the mind, than all the others we see indistinctly.” Paul Valery

This body of work continues the exploration of ideas from the Flourish Exhibition.
