FLORAL EVOLUTION, 2018

Neal Palmer

27 February – 28 March

Wanaka based artist, Neal Palmer’s exhibition, ‘Floral Evolution’ is a musing on the interactions of his earlier photorealist work and his newer silver leaf gilding work. Stylistically, the pushing and pulling of these two elements create a dynamic evolution, moving Palmer’s painting practice forward.

This being my 21st solo show, it started me thinking about the development of my work over the last 20 years and how my interest in botanical subject matter has evolved over that time.
