- FLORALIA - M CONTEMPORARY, SYDNEY, 21 JUNE - 8 JULY
- Floralia, a solo show of 40 paintings at M Contemporary, Sydney, opening 21 June 6-8 pm.
- Floralia, a title combining the words flora and Australia, and the name of a flower festival in ancient Rome to honour the goddess Flora.
- These paintings are of Austrailan flora in Guthleben's own collection of vases, which were mostly made in Australia in the 1950s. The smallest paintings are studies used as reference for the large arrangements, which have been inspired by the Dutch floral masters of the 17th century.
