Floral Play

pari-dust-floral play 2

The combination of something beautiful, organic, and free eternalized into a perfect world of symmetry are Todd Eberle’s photographic bouquets. At a 6×8’ scale, analogous to paintings, Eberle’s kaleidoscopic florals pop to vibrance within the schoolhouse-like charm of The National Exemplar Gallery. The works are an homage to Warhol’s Flowers and Rorschach paintings and also seem to magnify the joy of receiving flowers as ritual, a practice established by Eberle’s long time partner, Richard Pandiscio. Complimentary to the work’s exaggerated scale and explosive pattern is this bouncy baby doll dress by Mary Katrantzou, who realized her rococo dreams in this collection. A remembrance that you can never have too much of a good thing.
