Dominic Harris Bloomed: Wisteria
Bloomed is Harris's study of plants, with which onlookers may subtly interact. Playing on the nature of classical still life, small movements enliven the flowers, causing them to flourish as observers pass by. Meticulously recreated through computer animations, each flower encapsulates the romanticised surrealness synonymous with Harris's works.
A genus of deciduous climbers indigenous to Eastern United States, China, Korea and Japan, wisteria is a member of the pea family and is recognised for its clusters of hanging fragrant lilac and pale blue flowers. According to floriography, wisteria is a physical symbol of "welcome", supporting the contention why it's popularly grown around doorways and entrances.
