Rebecca Allan & richard Kooyman

October 18th - November 7th

This exhibition features Rebecca Allan's botanical drawings juxtaposed with abstract paintings of landscapes where the plants are typically found,  and Richard Kooyman’s portraits of women retrieved from their “absence” in Classical Western art. Allan considers the fragile connections of plant species to their particular habitats, while Kooyman explores the political and aesthetic vitality of female actors through a contemporary lens.

"Botany and ecology are deep sources of inspiration for my work as an abstract painter who works primarily with the landscape. I also have a longstanding practice in botanical illustration which is undergirded by my work as a gardener, and as the Plant Records Manager at Iroki Garden."  rebeccaallan.com

"In my current painting practice I reach back to historical paintings and sculptures to re-examine female figures and what I call “herstorical” characters by cropping out the patriarchal element in the original works.  I am attempting to reframe the political and aesthetic vitality of specific female actors through a contemporary lens.
