Poetic Botany calls to an 18th-century movement in which botany (the study of plants) became the subject of poetry, cultivating relationships between art and science, made visual in books, artworks, and gardens. For this 113th Women’s History Month (March) three local black femme artists are displaying their work in the Mallett Gallery to provide insight where the body meets botany in contemporary art.

ABOUT THE ARTISTS:

 
  • Ashley Innocent (Hartford, CT) shares a body of work responding to connections of the natural world and the human body; ultimately personifying nature and exploring the essence and energy of color, emotions, and beauty that we see and feel often. IG: ashley.thecreator
  • Amaya Jade (Windsor, CT) is drawn to the interconnectedness of flowers, symbolizing life, death, and love. Flowers, in their cyclical nature of life and death, serve as powerful symbols in her acrylic and oil pastels. IG: feyerelotus
  • Bizzie Ruth (Hartford, CT) displays En Rouge, a set of five photographs of Amaya Jade, channeling filmmaking, photography, and graphic design to celebrate the beauty of black and brown communities. Bizzie is also Founder and Director of THE PHOTOBOOTH, her art curation company. IG: @bizzier_
