Botanical Bestiary is an exhibition of new works by Courtney Brims, Lauren Marx, Crystal Morey and Thomas Jackson.
Brims’ drawings are inspired by the Australian rainforest and natural processes, such as pollination, propagation and dispersal. Marx’s pieces address her obsession with iconography while also exploring spirituality and healing. Morey’s hybrid porcelain figures, including human, animal and botanical elements, show that we are dependent on each other’s well-being. Jackson’s paintings reference native Australian plants that utilise fire for germination and fire’s effect on the animals that use such plants for food or habitation. PRESS RELEASE
