The current exhibition at Contemporary Collective showcases the work of multidisciplinary, British artist Claire Luxton. Botanica seeks to explore notions of strength and fragility, examining nature and the female form. Luxton will radically transform the gallery space, seeking to suspend the viewer in an immersive environment that’s both clinical and other-worldly.
Luxton describes her new collection SPECIMEN(s) as ‘sculptural floral narratives’, uniquely combining flowers, water, ink and resin to create meticulously composed ecosystems, as if seen through a microscopic lens. Luxton further heightens the senses, by hand-embellishing the images with diamond dust and resin, to create an intricate an enchanting collection.
Join us for the opening 2nd November 6-9 pm for #FirstThursdays. RSVP HERE
