Petal Moments

Nicola Lynch Morrin SBA Fellow, has an exhibition called Petal Moments, on now until the 31st May. It is on at the Séamus Ennis Arts Centre, Dublin, Ireland. Nicola creates portraits of flowers which she sees, not as mere decoration, but as distinct personalities. Their mystery and evocative power are a secret world she strives to penetrate. Her flower portraits attempt to capture and celebrate the delicacy, transparency, and transitory effects of petal moments.  This allows the viewer to contemplate the fragility and continual beauty of life itself.
