This event has ended.

Flowers announces the representation of acclaimed artist Mona Kuhn and an exhibition of her latest series of photographs in conjunction with her new book, "Native" (Steidl, Winter 2009/10). In addition to the opening reception on Thursday, April 8th, there will be a gallery talk conducted by the artist on Saturday, April 10th at 3pm. In these photographs, Kuhn encapsulates the emotions of living in Brazil through her memory of the landscape’s green, yellow and pink palette, as well as her intimate reconnection with its people. By contrasting the vitality of the dense Brazilian countryside with the sparse interior of an abandoned apartment, Kuhn establishes her own fantasy of time and place. Within the portraits, the artist develops a trusting relationship with her subjects, allowing her to portray the complexities of human nature, both tempting and provoking the viewer’s imagination. Kuhn delicately intertwines these disparate aspects, culminating in her most mature work to date.
