Artist Statement: 

Proteas know secrets in their DNA. 

80 million years in the soil of this earth. Captured in fossils, but thriving today. They lived when dinosaurs roamed the earth. Protea are one of the oldest flowering plant families known to us in the world. 

They have seen civilizations rise and fall. Ancient dreams and bygone histories locked in petals and thick, time-hardened stalks. Named in 1735 for Porteus, son of Poseidon. A shape changing god who embodies the liquidity and mutability of water. A god who can tell the future. From his name also comes the world "protean" - meaning capable of assuming many forms. Over 1500 species exist of this mystical bloom. Shape changing, indeed. 

They look like the foliage of some alien kingdom on another planet. Strange and prehistoric. When I think of them
