Large Format. Publisher's description: For nearly three years, Brian Clarke has drawn and painted one thing -- night orchids. Most nights between seven pm and midnight, Clarke can be found in his West London home, endlessly working on portrayals of this evocative flower, a uniquely nocturnal species discovered in 2011. Beginning on a visit to Thailand in 2013 and continuing in France, these works -- generally all the same size and proportion -- vary wildly in their medium. From white line drawings on black card to intricate stained glass, these depictions display the full, impressive beauty of one of the world's most exquisite creations. This luxurious and elegantly bound edition showcases over two hundred gorgeous color images, making it a fascinating, intimate study, perfect for art lovers and horticulturists alike.
