 War Flowers Touring Art Exhibition


WAR FLOWERS - Touring Art Exhibition

By Raynes Art + Design Ltd 
WAR FLOWERS | FLEUR D’ARMES
Ottawa | Toronto | Vimy | Montreal

“I believe people have an ability to find beauty and hope, even amidst the horrors of war. This exhibition examines human nature in wartime through a series of artistic representations, multisensory experiences and portraits of ten Canadians who were involved in the First World War.

Optical crystal sculptures created by Mark Raynes Roberts portray scenes that illustrate different aspects of human nature while scents developed by Alexandra Bachand evoke personal memory.

WAR Flowers is inspired by the pressed flowers picked by George Stephen Cantlie
in the gardens, fields and hedges of war-torn Europe and sent to his baby daughter
in Montreal. I examine these century-old flowers using floriography, a method of communicating emotion through flowers, to tell the story of human nature in the
landscape of war.”  – Viveka Melki, curator

Now showing:  Château Ramezay, Montréal — 24 October 2018 to 5 January 2020

WAR FLOWERS | FLEUR D'ARMES has been made possible by the Government
