In the realization of ‘the canopy’, Law considered the local landscape for inspiration — all flowers have been sourced within Australia, including seasonal blooms from the neighbouring Yarra Valley region.
Spanning overhead shoppers in an extended arched configuration, patches of purple, yellow, green and white blooms are arranged. Within this retail setting, the artist intends to reflect on the relationship between man and nature explaining that, ‘the intention for my works is for people to take a moment to be brought out of themselves and the canopy is no exception. There is an innate relationship between flora and beauty, so this was integral to inspiring the development of the canopy at Eastland.’
