Flora by definition refers to the plants of a particular region, habitat or geographics period and is derived from the latin word for flower. Nature is and always has been selfless, cycle after cycle, providing for us. Seasons of birth, life and death, transformation and growth, seasons swinging the weight of our world.
Beautiful, delicate, resilient ecosystems sustain our community spirit and support our interconnected lives. How have we found ourselves collectively on this Indigenous land and amongst its native flora, can we use flora as inspiration to learn Indigenous knowledge and resolve our collective gap?
Flowers can provide the smallest yet most powerful glimpses of hope, joy and colour. Flora is an exploration and celebration of the natural environment that surrounds us. Flora asks artists to rejoice in native flora and environment whilst exploring themes of belonging, acknowledgment, home, culture, passage and identity. Nature and flora are encouraged to be both inspiration and medium.
