Claire Botterill – Seed Heads Reborn exhibition
Published on Friday, 12th May 2017
Nuneaton Museum & Art Gallery 20 May - 2 July 2017 Beautiful pictures of plants adorn the landing gallery this spring.
Nuneaton-based Claire Botterill has created the pieces on show using wax, ink and watercolour to great effect.
Claire is inspired by the beauty a plant can have even after flowering and so the artworks feature plants in their later stages of life. Her exhibition aims to show an appreciation for the things which people may disregard, such as seed heads which have begun to decay and become dull and faded. Claire’s favourite pictures are those showing dandelions. A plant which is so well known for its look once reduced to seeds. Come and share her fascination for these delicate and beautiful forms.
