Suspended Flora, 2020 - 2022
7 Inflatable Mushrooms
Bold, whimsical and displayed atop the Glass Box, Slovak-Canadian artist Nicole Beno's Suspended Flora is the latest show-stopping piece of art at Drake Devonshire.
Composed of inflatable mushroom shapes and printed with eye-catching, fantastical patterns, the art piece began as an ongoing study during the pandemic, when picking wildflowers from the alleys and corners of her neighbourhood became the artist’s ritual, and a way of "documenting and capturing the fleeting beauty of change." The wildflowers were then scanned, distorted and collaged into new worlds caught between imagination and reality.
