What we did:
Reluctant Bloom is an installation created for 'Beyond the Bouquet,' a group show at the Stuart Haaga Gallery at Descanso Gardens. It consists of four drawings paired with four meditation rugs, created with the intention to hold a space for personal reflection. The drawings utilize colors, lines, and forms borrowed from the natural world, and were generated during the artist’s daily drawing ritual, where she drew inspiration from meditations on the lessons of the Tao Te Ching. The rug designs were generated by extracting details from the accompanying drawings, and were slowly constructed through the meditative, repetitive action of latch-hooking.
