Despite the title flowers are very thin on the ground in this exhibition. Artists were invited to submit images they felt responded to the title of the show.

Cupola always encourages broad interpretations for diverse submissions across all media.  Selected work has mostly fallen into two camps.  The artists seem to be split between work which is either very bold containing almost a violent energy, or, gentle forms and images with limited colour and subtle mark making.

“This contrast is what makes the exhibition. Artists use their energy to create images & forms that have the power to  stimulate our interest and curiosity and re-awaken senses that, like the winter earth, may have lain dormant for a while.” Karen Sherwood, Director & Curator.
