Rebecca Louise Law: Seasons
A journey through nature
Tue 18 May 2021, 10.30am – Mon 30 August 2021, 5.00pm
Filling our largest gallery space, Seasons is a stunning site-specific installation that has been created for Compton Verney by Rebecca Louise Law. The artwork is composed of approximately 250,000 dried flowers which have been suspended from the ceiling on copper wire, and includes hundreds of daffodils foraged from our grounds. Come and be immersed in this sensory journey through a British year in nature.
Rebecca Louise Law has created ambitious artworks with natural materials across the globe, most recently at The Toledo Museum of Art, Ohio, Skovaard Museum, Denmark, Chandran Gallery, San Francisco and the Shirley Sherwood Gallery of Botanical Art, Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew. Seasons represents the culmination of a period spent in the UK during the lockdowns of 2020 and 2021, during which time Law has been immersed in the natural world around her home in Snowdonia.
The installation is supported by a display of Law’s natural weaves, paintings, sculptures and nature diaries. Also on display is a selection of nature diaries kept by the local community and school groups who have been involved in the creation of the installation.
