Hermes-Aphrodite

Gallery I, Nellie Castan Gallery
15 November - 15 December 2012
12A River Street, South Yarra, VIC 3141 Australia

 

This title refers to the myriad strong androgynous references in contemporary botanical art. The works contain obvious androgynous metaphors and emphasise social factors, interpersonal relations, and other cultural influences of sexual identity through the balance of male and female parts in heterotic hybridised flowers.
