We’re pleased to launch the first of eight new artist posters featuring projects by Michael Dumontier & Neil Farber, Lenka Clayton, Séamus Gallagher and Melanie Colosimo. They are each autonomous works, but can also be read collectively through the lens of the pandemic, with subject matter such as fear, safety and mortality.
Michael Dumontier & Neil Farber I'm not afraid, flowers just tremble, 2019
This painting comes from our ongoing series Flowers. Each painting in the series depicts a flower, or flowers, accompanied by a text. Often these texts use the flowers to reflect on human experiences, with humour and melancholy.
