NICOLE ALLEN: Hush


Show dates: April 4-25, 2019
Artist Reception: Saturday, April 6th, 5-7pm

WALL SPACE GALLERY is excited for the newest collection, Hush, by Ottawa artist, Nicole Allen. Join us in celebrating her jubilant florals and welcoming in spring!

Hush speaks to the unspoken conversations flowers hold as we carry them over the threshold of the home and into our lives. As they fill a room with their bright colours and layered airiness, they silently wait for our attention, for our gaze to fulfill our end of the relationship - and listen. While ephemeral in nature, the flower can contain multitudes, entire speeches intended to convey our potentially never-ending feelings. The thought and gravity we imbue in flowers show their importance to us socially, and this is what gives them their second life. A life after being cut from the stalk, and a life long after the last petal wilts.
