Narielwalla’s new artist’s book Fear of the Flower celebrates queer male sexuality in a series of ‘rose-bud’ images (reminiscent of Georgia O’Keefe’s lush, sexualised blooms) painted onto the pages of a vintage pattern manual. Introduced with a text by Dr Michael Petry the book explores the often hidden codes through which desire is indicated or expressed.
