Client: National Art Gallery
Type of work: supply and installation of a living wall
This wall has been designed to bring a masterpiece to life. One of Van Goghʼs famous paintings, A Wheatfield, was depicted in plants.
The true painting can be seen in Room 45 of the National Gallery. 640 modules were grown, using over 8000 plants of varying species. The artwork was created by hand-planting each plant into the modules, using a numbered drawing.
The modules were grown at ANSʼ southern nursery in Aldingbourne, hung vertically to establish and then dispatched. Due to the very tight deadline on the project, the
whole installation took three days to complete. Maintenance will be carried out fortnightly throughout the Spring and Summer, including health checks, pruning and general plant husbandry
