Sarah Fairchild: Bloom

One Liberty Plaza

March 29, 2022 - September 12, 2022

Detail of Bloom by Sarah Fairchild

Bloom, by Sarah Fairchild, is a large three-dimensional abstract bouquet reminiscent of a Dutch flower painting interpreted through a modern lens. 

The artist’s blooms are presented in a variety of ways. Some are rendered as realistic flowers such as roses, tulips, and chrysanthemums. Others are simpler and covered in silhouettes of flocked weeds and other botanical forms. This “bouquet” is also dotted with joyful moths, spiders, and other insects that are beneficial to nature. Yards of metallic ribbons spill on the floor and tie the bouquet together. Upon closer investigation, viewers will also notice the ribbons are rose stems as they appear in the winter, beautiful and bare. This artwork represents and celebrates the transitory moments found in nature, such as death and rebirth or winter into spring.
