Chloë Manasseh's "Strange Flower" whose title is taken from one of Matsuo Basho's haiku is an autographic screenprint, printed in 11 colours. "Strange Flower" further explores Manasseh's concerns for the temporal state of the landscape. Manasseh deconstructs the landscapes she has traversed through painting, stripping them back to emotive gestural structures. By often omitting the horizon completely, Manasseh leaves the work in a vertiginous state. The painting serves to destabilise the viewer, implying sensations of being overwhelmed and off balance, contemplative and provoking.
