Description

With their delightful colours, incredible natural beauty and fascinating ‘otherness’, it is no surprise that flowers and plants have long captivated artists. They have come to symbolise a gamut of complex human emotions, including hope, delight, love, compassion, gratitude, grief, and loss. The fragility of flowers is a poignant reminder of the fleeting nature of life. Their sensory appeal – to our sight, smell, touch and even, sometimes, taste – brings us into the present moment, and they can affect our wellbeing in surprisingly healing ways. Bloom is a compendium of one hundred of the most beautiful floral works from Tate’s collection. Designed to encourage slow, mindful looking, it will bring reflection, restoration and joy.
