The works of both Sandra Sheehy (UK) and Anna Zemánková (1908–1986) draw inspiration from plant life and garden scenes. Sheehy makes felted wall pieces as well as delicate sculptures reminiscent of cocoons from chicken wire, fabric, and paper, which she later encrusts with fabric, stitching, beads, sequins, and shells. Anna Zemánková’s embroideries on paper suggest botanical illustrations and reveal nature’s more mystical side. Both artists, with some measure of spontaneity, allow the imagery of the outdoor world to unfold before the viewer. Shown together, their works disclose intangible, and spiritual aspects of the plant world.
