Rebecca Louise Law
On February 23rd, The Nivaagaard Collection reveals the big and site-specific installation ‘Nature Morte’ consisting of real flowers created by the young English artist Rebecca Louise Law. Her beautiful and technically demanding installation reinterprets the 200-year-old flower paintings in the current exhibition on the Golden Age painter J.L. Jensen. The flowers from the painting’s surface expand in space and give a sensual and spatial art experience.
At J. L. Jensen’s time, only the female painters painted flower pictures, not having access to the Art Academy. Therefore J.L. Jensen was a popular teacher for a number of female private students. By exhibiting a successful female artist from our time, we send a greeting to former female artists, who most often have fallen into oblivion.
