The Royal is pleased to present, Puppies and Flowers a group exhibition curated by Katie
Hector which features the work of Jenn Dierdorf, Dominique Fung, Delphine Hennelly,
Katarina Janeckova, Tess Michalik, Aliza Morell, and Mark Zubrovich. This collection of
paintings reimagines historically "domestic" subjects in order to reveal a contemporary
Depictions of household pets and sumptuous flower arrangements conjure a sense of comfort,
nostalgia, and serenity emblematic of a leisure class lifestyle. However, artists throughout the
history of painting have utilized these seemingly docile subjects in order to address the
complexities of human existence. For example in the hands of Frida Kahlo, René Magritte,
Francisco Goya, Georgia O’Keeffe, Adriaen van Utrecht, and many others flowers and
domesticated animals transformed into allegories which spoke to the atrocities of war, gender
dynamics, sociopolitical climates, and the omnipresence of death.
In dialogue with this historical convention the artists included in Puppies and Flowers interpret
the world around them through shared motifs. The work collectively deciphers elements of
longing, sexuality, and gender as each artist imbues their subject with personal narratives and
ambiguous symbolism. Projections of alternate realities take form as anthropomorphized
canines coax feelings of desire, neon flowers glow within the void of a blacken canvas, and
porcelain vases struggle to contain feral bouquets. The portrayal of puppies and flowers lend
their subversive beauty to the exhibition and persuade the viewer to reconsider the thorny
histories which have forged contemporary aesthetics.
