Marcy Lally "WILD WISDOM"

 Welcome to Wild Wisdom, a body of work based on nature and the passage of time.

A prominent theme in my work is rebirth — the continuous cycle of decay giving way to life. It is

most evident in the animal skulls adorned with flowers. Each work is a unique time capsule

celebrating these intricacies in the cycle of life. I’ve been fascinated with flowers since childhood. Georgia O’Keeffe said “If you take a flower in your hand and really look at it, it’s your world for a moment.” Flowers have always been my world, and I’m grateful to be able to share a bit of that world with you in my art. During my years arranging bouquets in mom-and-pop shops, I saw how important flowers are in commemorating life’s big and little occasions, from birth to death and everything in between. Ephemeral in nature, flowers speak to me in a fleeting language I can relate to. Steeped in lore and medicinal wisdom, their beauty and meaning is undeniable. From the day it sprouts from seed, a flower is grown from the earth and then goes back to the earth.
