Rebecca Louise Law: Seasons

A journey through nature

Tue 18 May - Mon 30 Aug

Filling our largest gallery space, Seasons will be a visually stunning site-specific installation by artist Rebecca Louise Law. Composed of thousands of preserved seasonal foliage and  flowers collected by Law throughout 2019, 2020 and 2021 and suspended on copper wires, the installation will reflect the ebb and flow of life. Taking the visitor on an undulating, physical and experiential journey through the year, Seasons will conclude with natural materials foraged from our own grounds.

British artist Rebecca Louise Law has created ambitious artworks with natural materials across the globe, and has recently had solo exhibitions 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. This work represents the culmination of a period spent in the UK, engaging with the natural world on her doorstep in Snowdonia.

Play your part in the exhibition

The lockdowns of 2020 and 2021 have produced a collective remarkable response from many people, with a greater desire to connect with green spaces and the natural environment. Seasons celebrates this new-found delight in nature. Watch the clip below to hear about how Rebecca’s creative practice has been informed by keeping a daily nature diary – perhaps you could try this at home?

Rebecca has also been keeping a nature diary on Instagram: @rebeccalouiselawdiary which will form part of the exhibition. We’d love to be able to share your encounters with nature in the exhibition too, please share your Instagram images and films with us at #CVNatureDiary.
