Flower Power Exhibition
There are more than 400 000 species of flowers according to the latest estimate in 2010. The flowering plants are by far the largest category of plants on Earth and many groups remain to be assessed. New species continue to be discovered, but 22 % are already under threat of extinction. A world without flowers does not bear thinking about. That is why we have put together this virtual exhibition, to celebrate and propagate the magical power of flowers forever. Artworks by Rosemary Mason, Kathy Haffegee, Mae-Wan Ho and Li Poon

Homage to Black 3, Expressions in Chinese Ink
This collection completes the Homage to Black series. It is a selection from paintings done during two periods, April-June and October-December 2014, while feeling bereft over the death of two old friends. Emilio Del Giudice and Nick Furbank were fonts of inspiration in complementary spheres of science and the humanities that had made my life complete, and irreplaceable in my heart and mind.
