Nicki Rolls presents an exhibition of large scale charcoal drawings of flowering plants that live in the wild.

Working loosely in charcoal, Rolls aims to capture the plant’s life and movement and, for the duration of the drawing, passage through time. The plants are often drawn with their roots exposed, revealing their source of life and energy but paradoxically, also their vulnerability and fragility.

The wildflowers are drawn life size or larger, seeking to celebrate the majestic and to foreground smaller plants and less prized plants and weeds.

The exhibition will be accompanied by an Artist’s Talk on Sat 29 October, 2.30pm.

Nicki Rolls will talk about her work and influences. She will also be joined by Dean Griffiths, architect and lead designer on the Northcote Nature Reserve project. He will talk about the evolution of the nature reserve as a creative response to nature and habitat enhancement within an urban setting and related community and ecology programmes.
