After a long and accomplished career in scientific illustration, Bonnie Hall turned with wonder and determination to the art of screenprinting. Resolved to "share the privileged close scrutiny of nature" that she had enjoyed, Hall created her first screenprint in 1992 while undergoing chemotherapy for breast cancer. Over the next twelve years, she created screenprints of Pacific Northwest wildflowers, ferns, and butterflies--natural history portraits in simple, sharp-edged planes of brilliant color. Inspired by old botanical prints and motivated by a desire to draw attention to "the overlooked, undervalued, or threatened wild things native to our Pacific Northwest landscape," Hall produced scientifically accurate prints that revealed the personality, life stages, and the very essence of her subjects--what a fellow artist aptly called the "gesture" of each plant. Ever Blooming collects the thirty-three large serigraphs and five smaller ferns that Hall created in the last years of her life, along with the artist's own text describing each plant and butterfly. Her narratives are rich in detail and informed by thorough study into plant distribution, life histories, use by Native Americans, taxonomic discoveries, and conservation issues. Taken as a whole, the work is a sparkling confluence of science and art. For botanists, wildflower enthusiasts, gardeners, and artists, as well as anyone who loves the Pacific Northwest wilderness, Ever Blooming offers a singular glimpse of the natural world as seen through the eyes of a gifted and inspired artist.
