Interior Flora is a show of new works by Katie Kaplan at C.R Ettinger Gallery. For the exhibition, Kaplan focuses on creating sculptural, printed textiles in relief and silkscreen, that evoke private spaces of fantasy and domesticity, viewed through a queer femme lens. Within the works is a collection of symbols and references drawing from mythology, art history, western esotericism, religious iconography, herbalism, and personal narrative. Her practice intends to elevate and explore feminine power and inner beauty.
