Says Amy Wright of her work Orchids and Plants Unknown: “Kew Garden greenhouses are living laboratories which hold a multitude of species, some that are endangered and others that are now extinct in the wild. I felt I was walking in the pages of explorers’ painted plant journals; there were so many splendid and wondrous flower specimens, that seemed derived from myth and fantasy.”

Amy’s landscapes are represented through rich colour, texture and rhythmic abstract patterning, referencing the structure and details of plants and found objects in their natural environments. She captures the ‘unnoticed details’ in the rich Australian bush, where leaves and roots and trunks and flowers are stripped to their simplest form and colour, then built up again through accents of light and shadow, brushstroke and line work to create landscape paintings of intense depth.
