THE BOTANIST by MOIRA FRITH
A new collection of six, large-scale limited edition prints by Moira Frith, taken from the artist’s original watercolours which were commissioned exclusively for this print edition.
There is a sense of wonder in Moira Frith’s huge botanical studies, not surprising as they are from the imagination of a trained biologist who has spent many long hours in the field, looking as closely as you can at flora and fauna, animals and birds.
In a colour palette of dusty pinks, greens and dark browns with pops of brighter colours, the prints resemble the faded beauty and two-dimensional abstraction that can be found in antique pressed botanical specimens.
The plants are ambiguous in their identification - perhaps they are the findings of an exploration into a new rain forest, or rare wildflowers found high in the Atlas mountains - but whatever their species, there is something incredibly tangible, organic and exotic even about these works that clearly play with a fascination for the natural world.
