Delaware Art Museum "They fool the eye by appearing realistic and fool the mind by conveying hidden messages, " states curator Margaret Winslow regarding her fascination with the sculpted and painted flowers in the Angela Fraleigh: Sound the Deep Waters exhibition currently onview.”

Thanks @delartmuseum 🙏🏻😘🙏🏻😘 In the entry way are fictitious bouquets, sent between various figures in history, crafted by both myself and women from different parts of the globe.

Inspired by notions of Victorian Flower language, a secret form of communication during the 19th century, many of these flowers have several meanings.
Through coded, symbolic and practical associations these seemingly benign decorative pieces facilitate a subversive reading. The flower arrangements on view may be read as hopeful, used as a poisonous weapon, induce abortions, denote LGBTQ+ identity, or refer to powerful women from Greek myth.

Exhibition organized and commissioned by the Delaware Art Museum. Images by Carson Zullinger, Kenne Ek and myself.
