From the Strange Botanica Series, by Anne Faith Nicholls
Acrylic on canvas, 24” x 30”, signed (initialed) lower right
This piece is the impetus of Nicholls' Strange Botanica Series. This is a dark, but dramatically striking painting, lush with verdant layers, and symbolic narrative undertones. Here, a green curtain showcases an oddity of nature, representing a tiny moment one's mind might ponder the evolution of our very own biology and ecology. It showcases and glorifies rarity, akin to an old sideshow poster.
