All the Flowers, Andil Gosine
This catalog captures the dualities of Andil Gosine's 2018 RMG exhibition, All the Flowers. At once lighthearted and dark, it is also both personal and relatable. With the Ixora flower-- native to his ancestral India, now flourishing in his birthplace of Trinidad-- Gosine tells the story of familial transplantation, and a fraught adolescence in Oshawa. With the lively floral motif he stages a complicated exploration of the search for community connection, and optimism in the face of hostility.
