Judy Morris & Ian Gibbins ‘Floribunda’ exhibition & book launch
14 June, 2015 @ 2:00 pm - 4:30 pmFree
Drawings by Judy Morris & Poems by Ian Gibbins
Exhibition open to the public 13 June – 26 July 2015
Official opening by Art Historian, Maureen Gordon at 2pm
Judy Morris interprets the world around her using a slow process of mark making with graphite and coloured pencil on paper. She is particularly inspired by the environment in her garden, watching the emergence and eventual turnover of native and introduced plants and the animal life they harbour. She is attracted to the more unusual shapes and textures of these plants and seeks to discover and represent the universal appeal of these amazing works of nature in her larger than life size drawings, hopefully encouraging others to take a closer look and make discoveries of their own!
Ian Gibbins’ accompanying poems begin as a response to the visual and scientific language of the illustrated plants, then imagine past or future journeys of discovery.
A book containing full colour reproductions of all the drawings with the poems will be for sale at the exhibition.
