ItemThe Green Thumb (Diptych)(2012) Grossman, SuziThis diptych is part of a series by the artist titles Flowers for All of US. In Flowers for All of Us, Grossman explores the dynamics of familial relationships within the domestic sphere. Grossman structures the images in such a way that ordinary spaces expand into broad tableaus, and she allows spontaneous moments to occur within a framework of orchestrated poses. These events become a reflection of the way in which the social expectations governing family interactions are not always sufficient to describe the reality of family life. Unexpected vibrancy breaks through the subjects’ attempts at perfection. "Relationships are reinforced by physical connections and complicated by spatial separations, and within each scene, I call both time and space into question and each must be reevaluated. Situated at the intersection of the surreal and the mundane, Flowers for All of Us analyzes the friction between the way we plan to act and the moments in which we lose ourselves."
