Floral Admiration – A new kind of virtual gallery
Periphery Media is excited to announce our newest exhibition!
Floral Admiration by Brittany Ellerbe is a series of eleven oil paintings of women on backgrounds of lush foliage. The subjects, some based on women in the artist’s life and others a product of her imagination, offer with their gaze differing perceptions and emotions which are then deepened through the universal language of flowers.
Presented in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic, the exhibition aims to approximate the experience of an in-person display by showing each piece as an artifact in space. From Bulow Plantation Ruins State Park to sites around Tampa and Lakeland, Florida, each location was chosen because of a connection to the aesthetics or the feeling of the piece. Detail shots acquaint the viewer with the intimate aspects of the work and offer a closer look at the colors and textures. It is meant to be understood as art within art.
