Hashimoto Contemporary is pleased to
present Lush, a group show curated by Jennifer Rizzo. The
exhibition brings together a group of thirty-three artists from
around the globe who have drawn inspiration from one of the
most prominent muses of all times – the flowering species.

Throughout history, florals can ben found represented in art from all cultures and regions, as well as a
source of inspiration within various artistic movements. With over 400,000 known plant species, artists
have long looked to this endless array of specimens, utilizing them to convey a universal symbol of
beauty as well as a spectrum of human emotion. By doing so, artists are able to imbue the delicately
stemmed floral with great emotional heft.

Lush spotlights contemporary artists once again looking to the timeless floral muse, from Karen
Lederer’s soothing moments captured within quietly painted scenes, to Jeremiah Jenkins’ lead flowers
emerging from bullet casings to Anna Valdez’s maximalist still lifes, the exhibition surveys a modern
approach to a classic subject.
