Imperfect Bloom is an exhibition showcasing a series of artworks by Melbourne-born Gina Kalabishis
Imperfect Bloom is an exhibition showcasing a series of artworks by Melbourne-born Gina Kalabishis. The works are currently on display at the architecturally designed Level 17 Artspace within the School of Creative Industries.
Gina's art works are expressed through depictions of the artist's many fields and inspirations, including her passion for Australian flora, female sexuality and the domestic duties of a mother as a gateway to explore and question our perceptions and expectations of beauty and aesthetics. The works are firstly developed from digital montages depicting varieties of flora and non-plant material shaped into the form of floral arrangements.
Her art reflects and describes what it feels like to be a woman with a different set of responsibilities and obligations to women of previous generations (such as her own mother), whose own lives were often expected to achieve a kind of perfection in order to be seen as proper and right.
Imperfect Bloom is on now at Level 17 Artspace, 17th floor, Victoria University building, 300 Flinders Street, Melbourne. On now until Wed 21 December.
