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.

Inspired by the herbaceous hybrid peony, Coral Charm
Awakening
Artist Notes:
Expanding my study of nature's beauty and diversity through the rare and exotic floral species that influence human culture, history and art, I am
now working on
a new series of paintings that explore the peony. With a similar track record of high esteem, attraction and healing as the orchid,
peonies also date back thousands of years, from the imperial palaces of China and Japan to ancient Greece.
Regarded as the national flower of
China, the peony symbolizes peace and opulence; and in art and literature, alluring female beauty. “Awakening” is the first peony painting in a
series inspired by my many visits to Cricket Hill Garden in Connecticut. Reviving my childhood love of the peonies my mom once cultivated, I’m
aware again that flowers speak a universal language of beauty – one that creates profound emotions in the heart that last far beyond our physical
presence. This truth has shaped my perception of the world and continue
s to inspire my art.
