Stubbington Library

Display of paintings, some large, of microscopic views of English orchids, focusing in on tiny details, massively enlarged, up to four hundred times usual size, so the results are semi-abstract. With glazes of oils or acrylics and often with vivid colours, the works are unusual microscopic views of bits of the flowers.
Produced partly as self-portraits, often the flowers resemble other organisms. Some works, not so much self-portraits, have texts painted on them as a pretence at black humour, to reveal how vulnerable the species are to over-development of the countryside.
One species is already extinct in Britain (since 1952) so here is conceptual art – the buyer receives absolutely nothing.
Library is open 9-5 usually, closed Wednesdays and Sundays, open 9.30am-1pm Saturdays, 9am-7pm Mondays.
