House of Solanum
This painting was selected for the 165th Royal West of England Academy Open Exhibition 1st October - 3rd December 2017
A greenhouse at night, lit with a collection of poisonous plants, caged in a house within a house.
I'm interested in the healing properties of plants, and love the magic of the darker side of plants, kept captive in cages for fear of the harm they could do.
