Anita Gwynn is exhibiting new drawings of at Vinyl, 4 Tanners Hill, London SE8 4PJ until mid-April.
Anita says “I am interested in the indigenous and wildflowers, especially in my local area and my drawings in this exhibition are examinations of some of these flowers. If I have drawn them it is because I have been excited by their shape and beauty. Coming from surburbia and its tidy gardens, I enjoy the plants that break through the concrete and walls and grow, beautifully and subversively. They can be part of the heritage of a place and each plant has a story, a myth or a legend attached to it. My artistic practice helps me to look outside of my own life and to see the world. It helps me to relate to it with curiosity and to understand that I am part of it and not separate from it. Ecology and stewardship are important to me and I have come to see that we do not exist in isolation, but as part of a whole. Without plants we wouldn’t survive.”
