Photographer Giles Revell’s series of images reinterpret the colours of well-known flowers, abstracting them to eliminate the distraction of form; petals and stems are reduced to accurate graphic examinations of the consistent hues.
The images, first printed in Cartographic Colour, a book published by Concentric Editions, were photographed partly on site at RHS Wisley using live specimens, and partly in Revell’s studio using cut flowers, meaning the level of detail contained in the images is highly impactful.
In May 2019 the images were displayed against the lush green backdrop of Crossrail Place Roof Garden, a tropical oasis in Canary Wharf. Printed as large format photographs and displayed around the garden the vibrancy of the images jump out of the foliage as you walk around.
Canary Wharf offers world-class, year-round arts and events programme presenting over 200 diverse and culturally inspiring events and exhibitions throughout the Estate.
