LondonJanelle Lynch: Another Way of Looking at Love
Meet the artist & book signing. Saturday 16 November, 12noon-2pm
Flowers Gallery presents a suite of prints by photographer Janelle Lynch from her Prix Pictet shortlisted project, Another Way of Looking at Love. A selection of images will also be exhibited at the Victoria and Albert Museum as part of Prix Pictet: Hope, from the 14 November – 9 December 2019.
In Another Way of Looking at Love, Lynch explores the interconnectedness of all life forms and supports a renewal of relations between the natural and spiritual worlds. In some images, Lynch creates points of connection with elements from the same species—Japanese barberry or burdock, for example—while for others, she combines multiple species, such as goldenrod and pokeweed or burning bush and pine trees. Points of connection create spaces where new realities can be envisioned. The depiction of unity, together with color and light, show the beauty and magic of the natural world.
Lynch notes, “We are hardwired for connection and our elemental sameness unites us and transcends our apparent differences. Our wellness and the well-being of the world depend on healthy connections to each other and to the earth.”
Borne of awe for the power of nature, Another Way of Looking at Love seeks to re-imagine the power of connection: to one another, to the planet, and to the generative possibilities of the moment.
Another Way of Looking at Love: Collector Edition box set
Includes 5 images exhibited at the Victoria and Albert Museum as part of Prix Pictet: Hope, and a sixth image October Light chosen by the artist.
