A timely and imaginative visual exploration through watercolors, with an essay by Zadie Smith.
Flowering Under Stress presents a wide selection of works from Ana Prvački’s daily watercolor practice that began during the Covid19 pandemic. It guides us through the inner and outer landscapes of our recent years, as we grappled the complex emotions of a world turned upside down.  

A therapeutic visual journey that reveals Prvački's signature playful wit, the watercolors address current conversations on history, ecology, sexuality, technology, self care and mental health. Offering an imaginative and improvisational approach to the world, Flowering Under Stress encourages us to recognize our shared humanity and to look for hope and possibility in unlikely places.
