Never have wilted vegetables shown so alluringly as in Cabbages, by Polly Thayer. Shiny wet, purple-veined leaves twist away from the center, and a demure little blue cabbage, under its dead outer leaf, almost hides a red magma center...A powerful life force bursts from Polly Thayer’s plant paintings, from her trees imploring the sky to her sensual gardenias, cyclamen and gladioli.
