DESCRIPTION

SuperCallaFragileMysticEcstasyDioecious highlights the work of four Los Angeles artists who synthesize concerns both artistic and ecological through the painting of flowers. Cole Case, Amir H. Fallah, Penelope Gottlieb and Roland Reiss bring disparate painting approaches and varying cultural associations together as an artistic response to the world’s concentrically dizzying spin.


“Whereas older traditions of botanical art and still life painting involved calm, studio-bound reflections of natural beauty and visual order, a new paradigm seems appropriate in the more fragile condition of the world in the early 21st century. We’re in a state of accelerated change, possibly teetering on some sort of apocalyptic brink.” -Penelope Gottlieb
