Casa Coastal: Rebecca Louise Law is an ambitious exploration of art and horticulture, pivoting on a community dialogue about the importance of native and water-wise plants in coastal Southern California. A year-long educational initiative culminates in an immersive installation artwork designed by renowned British artist Rebecca Louise Law using 8,000 water-wise blooms grown by the Orange County community.
Rebecca Louise Law is an installation artist based in London who is best-known for artworks created with natural materials, namely flora. She is passionate about natural change and preservation, and takes pride in creating installations that are representative of the region she is commissioned in. The life cycle of her materials and region-specific blooms contributes to the evolution of each work.
Law’s work has been exhibited in Times Square, Art Basel, the Victoria & Albert Museum, the Royal Opera House, and the Royal Academy, among others. She has completed commissions for internationally recognized brands including Viacom, Tiffany, Hermès, Burberry, and Jo Malone. She has been featured in such publications as The New York Times, The Oprah Network, CNN, The Huffington Post, Newsweek, and House Beautiful.
This will be the first time such a major installation piece will be commissioned in Orange County.
Patrons are encouraged to visit the gallery several times during the course of the summer, since the exhibition wlil change as each bloom follows its own life cycle and drying pattern.
