Janet Laurence, ‘Botanical Residues (after the Great Glasshouse)’


‘Botanical Residues (after the Great Glasshouse)’, 2005, duraclear, photographs on acrylic, 100 x 150 cm

$38,000.00 inc GST

Janet Laurence’s influential ‘after the Great Glasshouse’ series elegantly investigates historical botanical glasshouses as prisms to display and cultivate plants removed from their original environment. The ethereal archival images of architecture give the work a delicate structure, tempered by the sweeping veils of translucent white pigment, tiptoeing between historical record and memory.

“I try to create a space somewhere between evidence and imagination. While my practice is based on deeply held convictions about the environment and our relationship to it, I think it’s important that viewers make their own journey and experience it as a space of reflection.”
