Canberra Museum and Gallery

A sculptural garden of giant cyclamens on exhibition at CMAG on the Square between 4 December 2021 and 19March 2022.

When my grandmother was alive, we would gather together with our families to celebrate Mother’s Day. Cyclamens were firstly used as the table decorations and then became parting gifts, so I have watched them bloom over many seasons. Each flower [evolves] to stand so statuesquely en pointe—with varying degrees of accomplishment. The life journey analogy became too delicious … so we are now in the land of the giants and the beautifully watched over cyclamen flowers with their individually upturned and translucent petals have grown into immense forms that will continue to shine light and guide over pathways.
