About the Work
Inspired by the narratives and botanical drawings of women naturalists including Canadian pioneer Catharine Parr Traill, Fiona Ackerman has created a series of paintings that re-imagine nature. In her work, Ackerman re-interprets the taxonomy of flora, overlapping bold shapes and patterns with colourful flowers and stems, seeds and insects.
