Curator’s Statement

Flowers play a leading role in moments of heightened emotions – births, marriages, deaths- and serve to help us express the depth of our emotions, when words may seem too distancing. The arc of their lifespan of bud, to bloom, to decay, echoes our own, and provides a rich metaphor for a human life.


Like a piece of music, they concisely encapsulate a range of semiotic meanings, and are received on a visceral level involving our senses…


You are invited to participate in the Flora Sensa Facebook page to share your stories, memories or thoughts on the role flowers have  played in the most significant moments of your life.
