Trudging through the City on my way to the ‘job that pays the bills ‘, I must have walked passed this installation many times. I am disappointed in myself, as I am usually more observant and I would have liked to have seen it in its fresher stages. That said, catching sight of the flowers as colour begun to leave them appealed to my fascination with beauty in decay
This living installation flourishes from the ceiling of the Guildhall Gallery’s foyer. It is the work of artist Rebecca Louise Law, who’s work will beguile flower fanatics everywhere. Inspired by London’s urban gardens, fresh flowers hang from copper wires and slowly they dry, preserve and decay.
