Celebration, Papaver. Watercolour on Kelmscott vellum 16.6 x 16.75 ins
"Fiona Strickland seeks to engage and surprise viewers, often depicting flowers from an unusual viewpoint or at turning points in their life cycle. Her striking and dramatic works challenge perceptions of botanic art. Although botanically accurate, her paintings move beyond pure scientific representation, and are inspired by an emotive and artistic response, making each work a portrait that vividly captures the spirit of her subject."
