Kirk Maxson – In the Garden, Shelburne Museum

Kirk Maxson’s remarkable work with foliage and flowers is apart of Shelburne Museum’s exhibition ‘In the Garden’. His piece, Gwen, is an homage to the late LGBTQ Gwen Amber Rose Araujo who was killed for being transgender.

“Eighty percent of Earth’s plants produce eye-catching, fragrant flowers to attract insects, which in turn act as pollinators. Over the course of millennia, these symbiotic relationships have resulted in the evolution of an endless array of colors and shapes of both flowers and insects. Featuring fine art, textiles, jewelry, and the bodies of actual insects, this exhibition explores the various ways flowers and bugs have captivated artists’ imaginations over the last five centuries.”
