About the Work
Petals, leaves and seeds meet looped ribbons of blue-green in this charming botanical painting by Fiona Ackerman. The painting is part of a series inspired by the narratives and botanical drawings of women naturalists including Canadian pioneer Catharine Parr Traill. In her work, Ackerman re-interprets the taxonomy of flora, overlapping bold shapes and patterns with colorful flowers and stems, seeds and insects.
