The Orchid Alliance Project - Bridging Art & Science,
designed by artist Patricia Laspino, is an important endeavor
with global significance.

Using orchids as a metaphor, the collaborative project explores
connections between art and science, uniting participants who
share a common sensibility for global stewardship.

The watchword of the Orchid Alliance Project is “Awareness”.
Seeking to increase awareness and appreciation for the beauty
and diversity of the natural world, the project links the historical,
biological and cultural significance of the orchid  through  the
vehicle of art.

As a professional artist, Patricia Laspino’s 35 year career has been inspired by the beauty and diversity of the natural world and its power to
influence art and culture. She sees orchids as a flagship plant family, an ambassador to tell stories about the interconnectedness of
humanity and the natural world. She was asked by the U.S. Botanic Garden at the Capitol to design two original oil paintings for the “Orchid
Symphony” exhibition and from them produced two 60 “x 75” fine art prints on canvas which hung in the US Botanic Garden entry foyer.

As a professional artist, my 35-year career has been inspired by the beauty and diversity of the
natural world and its power to influence. My life’s work, the “Orchid Alliance Project-Bridging Art
& Science”, uses orchids as a metaphor, to explore cultural and biological evolution, biodiversity
and environmental stewardship through art. I view orchids as a flagship plant family or
ambassador to tell stories about the interconnectedness of humanity and the natural world.

My oeuvre explores the fundamental attractive shapes and designs of nature where symmetry,
color, and pattern all play important roles on nature’s grand stage of attraction. Like the orchid’s
deceptive pollination strategies, my paintings interweave 60-80 layers of transparent oil color,
over a textural groundwork of botanical impressions to engage the senses and incite passion. My
signature style uses layers of paint to capture light, animating the surfaces to achieve vibrancy,
luminosity and drama.

My orchid paintings at the Missouri Botanical Garden encourage you to come along on a journey
of awareness to discover hidden secrets, wondrous beauty and unlimited possibility in the realm
of the sublime
