Known for her striking figurative paintings of imagined characters, Lynette Yiadom-Boakye celebrates the arrival of Spring in Natures, Natural and Unnatural, a display that uses nature as inspiration in different ways: as still life, in the abstract, as a feeling or as an environment. Through painting, photography and film her display considers how people interact with nature, both indoors and outdoors.Highlights include David Hockney's 30 Sunflowers (1996), a vibrantly coloured oil on canvas, and Peter Doig's large-scalepainting Green Trees (1998) depicting an imagined forest. Also featured is a video by Estonian artist Jan Toomik, Dancing with Dad (2003), which shows the artist dancing in a sunlit woodland where his father was buried and Andy Warhol's brightly coloured screen-print of a cow.As well as full-colour installation photography, the publication includes an interview with the artist, and an essay by art historian Petra Lange-Berndt on the relationship between modern art and nature within the context of the display.
