MATT BAX | MEMENTO MORIBANA
One of Australia’s leading emerging artists – Matt Bax engaged Einwick to showcase his latest exhibition. Momento Moribana are expressions of Japanese flower arrangement Ikebana. Moribana means “piled up flowers”.
“Forever looking to the history of painting, Bax instructs the viewer to recall the power of the flower throughout art. The floral motif was once inextricably associated with ephemerality, owing to the influence of Dutch painting in the 16th & 17th Century and their traditions of the Vanitas and Memento Mori. “
