About the Work
Inspired by the narratives and botanical drawings of women naturalists including Canadian pioneer Catharine Parr Traill, Fiona Ackerman has re-imagined nature in this delightful painting. In her work, Ackerman re-interprets the taxonomy of flora, overlapping bold shapes with colorful flowers and stems, seeds and insects.
