Hill 2014

The forthcoming exhibition at the Shirley Sherwood Gallery of Botanical Art will reveal how - from the creation of the original ‘physic’ garden in 1759 to its position today as a UNESCO World Heritage site and world-class research establishment - Kew has been a source of inspiration.
As part of the exhibition Laurence Hill’s Fritillaria, A Family Portrait, will be on display, 80 species shown life-sized in one continuous 10 metre long image. The sequence in which the plants are represented is based on the most up-to-date genetic research from Kew’s Jodrell Laboratory.
Gallery Talk at 14:00 on October 8 and November 5, 2014
