Phantom Flowers

Jane Henzell

  • 13 Jun - 1 Jul, 2005

Presenting lavish new watercolour works, Phantom Flowers draws upon the traditional botanical watercolours of yesteryear but playfully injects the fantastical and the absurd. Anenomes are layered over skyscapes, damp green mosses bleed into oceans - forms recognisable and unrecognisable morph into one another. Embedded in these works is Henzell's fascination with the epic tales of traditional Japanese landscape painting, in which flowers and plants were observed under lunar transitions.

Phantom Flowers similarly evokes both a grandeur and a quietude from super-natural phenomena..
