NOW gallery on London’s Greenwich peninsula hosts British artist Rebecca Louise Law artwork consisting of 10,000 fresh irises with copper wire, floating within the gallery space. ‘The Iris’ continues Law’s ongoing investigation of floral forms and their gradual evolution through the stages of beauty and decay. A vibrant palette of blue, purple, yellow and white flowers is hosted within the gallery, drawing nature into the site.
Hanging from the gallery ceiling, the flowers dry over the course of the exhibition, which runs from now through May 7, 2017. Viewers are given the opportunity to engage with the stages of life and decay, observing the process of preservation and artist’s ongoing exploration of ephemerality.
