Exploring the Emotive: Edinburgh’s Arusha Gallery’s Bloodroot

Bloodroot at Arusha Gallery in Edinburgh is the the Gallery’s first physical show of the year. Named after a flowering plant native to eastern North America, but attributed a metaphysical meaning of love and re-emergence, the exhibition combines James Owens’ imagined folk paintings, in which tendrils and thorns are a metaphor for the ‘black dog’ of depression and as a means of identifying human emotion in nature, and Mary Herbert’s luminous, soft pastel drawings formed of feelings, observation and unconscious processes.
