Audrya Flores, Play and Decay at the Confluence Ephemeral Installation

Using locally sourced flora, Artist Audrya Flores collaborated with workshop participants to create an organic assemblage depicting a giant flower-serpent. During late spring, when plant life is lush and temperatures are beginning to rise, this creature will playfully coil in full bloom on a hillside near the San Antonio River in Confluence Park. Over time, with the help of the elements and local fauna, the installation will decay, disassemble, and reintegrate itself back into the landscape of the park. This work celebrates cycles and the precious, fleeting nature of life.

On view through May 4-31 at the San Antonio River Mission Reach at Confluence Park.


Audrya Flores is a Tejana artist and mother who repurposes textiles and organic materials for her mixed media works. Through storytelling and myth-making, she explores trauma, healing, and identity. Her work is influenced by all things natural and supernatural as well as her roots in the border town of Brownsville, Texas. She received her Bachelor of Arts in Education from the University of Texas at San Antonio. She has exhibited at Contemporary Arts Museum Houston, Mexic-Arte Museum, Lady Base Gallery, Provenance Gallery, Luminaria Contemporary Arts Festival, Centro de Artes, Culture Commons Gallery, Central Library Gallery at San Antonio Public Library, Contemporary at Blue Star, and Sala Diaz. Flores lives and works in San Antonio, Texas.
