The work of Mireille Gros echoes an ideology that places plants at the center of life on earth rather than as its embellishment. Gros does not attempt to document, catalog, or reproduce nature. Instead, she works adjacent to the plant world, drawing inspiration from its diversity and complexities.

"Every day a species disappears - every day I invent a new one." Through her long-running Fictional Plant Diversity Project, which began in 1993, Gros has created an entire taxonomy of invented plant life.
