Julie Pike – Flowers Shall Grow
Éditions du LIC – 2013
Inspired by Edvard Munch’s oft quoted words, “Flowers Shall Grow” by Julie Pike presents a collection of seemingly innocent and playful images suffused with a sense of melancholy and imbued with a subtle and coded symbolism. Bergmanesque figures, often stripped bare, are glimpsed deep within Norwegian forests, spied solitary beside dark waters or voyeuristically observed in sparse domestic interiors. Whatever the narrative components, the harsh Northern light of the fleeting Scandinavian sun is all pervasive.
