Liz Reed is a gallery owner and a keen gardener. Seedlings have been nurtured on an inclined grid and during the course of the exhibition will reach, by heliotropism, towards the sunny window, with painterly effects intended. The work is a series of scarcely perceptible gestures, documented by paintings and by photography.
