Artist: Suzanne Treister Exhibition Title: HFT The Gardener Exhibition Dates: February 11 – March 12, 2016 Gallery LInk: http://www.ppowgallery.com/exhibition... Video LInk: https://youtu.be/EQZl_cUi7Vg Utilizing the ancient Hebrew tradition of Gematria, which assigns a numerical value to each letter of the alphabet, Traumberg calculates the numerological equivalents of the botanical names of the psychoactive plants and cross-references them with companies in the FT Global 500 Financial Index. Pairing the botanical plants with the companies they correspond to on the FT Index, he spends his days creating groups of prints and drawings inspired by the work of Ernst Haekel which he had loved as a child, and of Adolf Wölfli, whose drawings he had more recently seen on a banking trip to Bern in Switzerland.
