Parafin is delighted to announce a cross-generational exhibition of artists exploring themes related to biomorphism – the use of abstract forms or motifs that evoke forms from nature such as plants and parts of the body. The works included focus on aesthetic investigations into the interconnection between the human and the environment, and the environment in the human.
Taking as a reference point the poem by Dylan Thomas, The force that through the green fuse drives the flower (1934), the exhibition explores the paradox of creative and destructive forces coming together in human nature and the biological.
"The force that drives the water through the rocks
Drives my red blood; that dries the mouthing streams
Turns mine to wax.
And I am dumb to mouth unto my veins
How at the mountain spring the same mouth sucks."
