MARILLA PALMER: Orchids of the Anthropocene
Palmer’s work is a celebration of the natural world and a reminder of the delicate balance between nature and human creation. “I want to turn everyone on to the absolute gorgeousness of the natural world around us. Art is my tool,” says Palmer. The title of the exhibition refers to the Anthropocene era, a term used to describe the current geological age – marked by significant human impact on the environment. She seeks to capture the sensitive equilibrium that we as humans must navigate, spotlighting the beauty of nature in the midst of this complex relationship.
