Depictions of flora have been present throughout human artistic practice and continue as a fascinating subject for contemporary artists practicing today.

Utilising the collection of works by some of Australia’s most well-known and respected artists at the Art Gallery of New South Wales, along with works especially created for the exhibition by a number of emerging contemporary artists, this exhibition presents historical and contemporary examinations of the humble flower.
