Flora and Faune: Narrative Through Iconography – NY
Deadline: December 1, 11. For generations, artists have used signs and symbols from nature to impart meaning in their artwork. Audiences of previous eras were well-versed in this seemingly covert language. Each icon usually has several different meanings; for instance a rabbit may mean fertility, longevity, femininity or rebirth. However, the rabbit as a symbol, like all other icons, has been in use for centuries around the globe. The multiple meanings of iconographic signs were applied layer by layer as they moved culture to culture. Nature was imbued with meaning by humanity and artists used those images to tell a story, a narrative. This thematic juried exhibition seeks artwork that uses those established symbols to tell a contemporary story about our society – past, present or future.
