Produced by Saint Mary’s University Art Gallery, Halifax. Curated by Tila Kellman.

Jeannie Thib uses high-tech design and fabricating techniques to rework decorative floral patterns, asking, “What if our contemporary built environments were based on ornamental botanical patterns? Can decorative urban space lead to more caring relationships with our environment and with each other?” The Toronto artist generated expansive reliefs and jewel-like models in contemporary industrial materials.
