Exhibition 'Gardens in the mind' by Ludmila Shumilova

Published the 9th of May 2023


'Exhibitions' is a powerful tool to create online exhibitions with your photos.
You can add quotes, change the order of your photos and align them in different ways and change the size. Just like a gallery curator arranging prints on the walls of an exhibition you can do the same. The landing page on your profile is an exhibition which you can customize, you can also add more exhibitions and decide which one should be your landing page.


A succesful exhibition will be published in the magazine on a regular base.
You can present some of your favourite exhibitions by adding text – stories or quotes – to make them even more attractive and to be selected.  Maybe the next one will be yours.


In the spotlights today, the exhibition 'Gardens in the mind' by Ludmila Shumilova
This beautiful and most interesting exhibition shows us exquisite florals and a few wonderful flowery portraits. 

Ludmila quotes : '
All my work has found inspiration in the theme of the garden as the focus of  a multifaceted approach to many meaningful aspects of human life: representation of reality, aspirations, memory. In my project I focus on the interaction between plants as complex organisms and the human mind, on how their presence and observation shapes and mirrors our perception of the world and ourselves. I try to understand how flowers are reflected in our imagination and projected back as synthetic artistic representation. Their shapes, patterns, colours, textures are closely related to their own circadian rhythm, movement, life-cycle but they may be also interpreted as messages written in an encrypted language and influencing our visual preferences in art or design.'

Hello Lyudmila: Your photos reflect my obsession with flowers. For years I used to start the day going up to my terrace to photograph any flower that was alive at that moment. I watched as even without the end of winter, they were born. Your beautiful compositions, made with a great effect of light and harmony, captivated me from the beginning, because they moved me to that inner world that helped me so much in the worst moments of my life- Congratulations for these delicate compositions that contain so much beauty. Warm greetings.
I am really touched by your message, dear Asuncion! Thank you so much!
