NOW Gallery is pleased to present ‘The Iris’ a newly commissioned site -specific installation by Rebecca Louise Law. Law, is known for her use of organic material, in a sculptural and painterly fashion. 10,000 fresh irises will be suspended with copper wire and will appear to float within the gallery space. Law’s palette of vibrant blue, purple, yellow and white irises will inhabit NOW gallery, bringing nature into the gallery and as with all our installations, change the way we look at the space. Working with simple colour, the irises will cascade to envelope viewers.
The work will take a simple object – in this case an iris – creating visual impact with not only quantity but also arrangement.
The undulating silhouette of the work will be visible on the approach to the gallery. It is not until you enter the space that the work reveals evidence that these fresh flowers are forever changing becomes apparent, as they dry out and their shapes change and contort.
