Collection: Alison Mitchell - Serious Flowers

 Vibrant tones shine through Mitchell's graphic style and draw the viewer into a blossoming collection of hooked art pieces.
Serious Flowers challenges the idea that botanical artwork must be a simplistic concept. Inspired by the rich tradition of rug hooking in Nova Scotia, vibrant thrift store vases, and a flourishing South Shore garden, Mitchell hand dyes Atlantic Canadian yarn from Canada's oldest woolen mill to vibrant colours. Mitchell pulls away from her typical figurative style, compelled to find joy and positivity amid the flowers, despite recent conflicts and tragedies that impact our daily lives.
