The Iris by Rebecca Louise LawWith 10,000 fresh irises suspended by a copper wire, The Iris is an installation which immerses the viewer in nature, an experience that is rare in the concrete metropolis. This floral artwork by Rebecca Louise Law was inspired by the land that the NOW Gallery occupies, once a wetland of tidal marshes previously known as 'Bugsby's' and 'Greenwich Marsh'. Using a palette of blue, purple, yellow and white irises, the combination results in a visually stunning display. Constantly changing, the petals will dry out while in situ in the NOW Gallery, allowing the viewer to see the process of preservation as well as new sculptural shapes.

 

About NOW Gallery

Designed by London Eye artchitects Marks Barfield, NOW Gallery is a gallery in the Greenwich Peninsula intended as a space for a series of commissions, each lasting for three months. The gallery lends itself to immersive installations and site-specific works. "The space is a unique canvas for artists, sculptors, fashion designers, graphic artists and creatives to conjure up exhibits that are playful, inspiring and that bring alive our unconventional gallery space" said NOW Gallery curator Jemima Burrill before the gallery opened in September 2014.
