Lyndsey Ingram announces the gallery’s reopening with a show of new work by the British artist Sarah Graham. Known for her expressive, large-scale drawings of the natural world, the artist is presenting new subject matter focused on the surreal juxtaposition of flowers and insects. Hellebores and peonies intertwine in an intimate dance with bees and butterflies, all painted in Graham’s characteristic large scale. Their magnification, combined with exquisite detail, transforms these drawings of flora and fauna into evocative images of a world often overlooked. Viewers are enveloped as they stand dwarfed by the beetles and blossoms so often trodden underfoot.
She has drawn the flowers from life as much as possible and the insects from the National History Museum’s collection. Through the adverse circumstances of the last few months, observing spring at close quarters, Graham’s vision of the beauty and strangeness of nature may be particularly relevant to modern sensibilities.
