MFA Exhibition for Jameson Mulac titled, "Botanical Folktales".


"I’ve always had an appreciation for plants. My deepest childhood memories are rooted in sensory experiences of being able to see, smell, touch, taste and hear the delights that accompany being outside in the garden. My mom had a garden; the left side of our house was bordered with cornfields and our backyard trailed into the woods behind the pasture. I remember sitting by the fence between the garden and the pasture picking buttercups and playing 'do you like butter?' My siblings and I would hold them up to each other’s chins to see if the flower created a yellow glow, revealing that we do in fact like to butter our toast. While I don’t remember the origin of this folklore, I remember the pure bliss in picking a flower, feeling it in my hand and smelling its sweet aroma. My work is inspired by my childhood memories of plants and the desire to learn about and share their stories through the lens of diverse cultures and history. I see plants as a muse, a passageway into reconnecting with the living world and they play an important role to our material and spiritual existence."
