BLOOM | Mia Forrest
8 March - 30 April 2023
Mia Forrest's BLOOM artworks of Australian Native flowers, hybridize time, technology, and nature; surreal stretching flowers bloom upward, embodying re-imagined cosmic forms and shapes, planting botanicals within a digital context using time expanding techniques, immortalizing the otherwise impermanent and ephemeral nature of botanicals. As the flowers transform and bloom, they form a DNA-like helix structure, inviting the audience to contemplate how species morph, change, survive, and thrive over time.
