Far beyond roses symbolizing love, flowers are imbued with significance spelled out through “floriography,” a language expressed through many a bouquet in the Victorian era. This coded form of communication is a recurring theme in the work of Amada Claire Miller, an Austin transplant, Southwest School of Art BFA candidate and founder of the artist-run gallery Hello Studio. Incorporating printmaking, found objects (including a flower dictionary published in 1835), photography and collage, the latest chapter of Miller’s study of “feminine qualities through the evolving use of the language of flowers” comes to light this week at AnArte. Named after a variety of small bouquet (often wrapped in a doily and tied with satin) exchanged during the 19th century, her “Tussie Mussie” aims to “translate the subversive use of floriography by exploring the changing role of female artists throughout history.”
