Ornament is a collection of works on paper and ceramics that combine Perth artist Yvonne Zago’s interest in plant morphology and botanical illustration with motifs and patterns drawn from art history.

Zago has created a series of still life paintings with unique compositions and painstaking detail to investigate the relationship between ornamentation and the natural world. Decorated vases display her observations in the bush and garden, many of which hold strong childhood memories.
