A new exhibition will begin soon at Bon Papillon, which means you have just 5 days in which to admire the extraordinary paintings of Rachel McKean there until 7 September.
McKean – a gifted cellist with an interest in art restoration –
'Detail is the most important aspect of my work,' she writes. 'I hope to draw the viewer into my paintings, to look again at the often-unnoticed patterns and textures of the natural world, whether a leaf, a stone or a puddle.
'I work from a collage of photos combining different viewpoints to build an image that is full of detail.'
Below is her 'Pebbles'.
[Bon Papillon is open at 15 Howe Street, every day except Tuesday, 9am–5pm.]
