Listening to nature

By Maria Gregoriou

The Centre of Contemporary Art Diatopos is currently showcasing a group exhibition inspired by the blooming of flowers, entitled Floriography.

The artists taking part metaphorically listened to the stories unfolding in the petals of flowers, and brought them to life on canvas.

Exploring the outdoors, and having a conservation with nature is probably as old as the mountains themselves, and like the great Romantic poets, William Wordsworth and Samuel Taylor Coleridge, these artists have taken up their brushes and pencils to record the whispers of nature – and until the end of the month you can see their words bloom.
