Wildflowers

Rhea’s series Wildflowers is inspired by the act of re-wilding in nature and in our lives, an ode to regenerative practices and going back to the soil. Moving away from the commercialisation of beauty the subjects in these artworks grow free and wild in her neighbourhood. Goa, where she lives, has been affected dually by the ongoing climate crisis and severe deforestation due to draconian government policy and rapid private construction. This series celebrates the natural ecology of Goa by shining light on these native flowers photographed over a span of months, one artwork at a time, to be respectful of their growth cycles and short lives.
