This month, from 1 to 30 November, ZIMMERMAN is featuring Barely contained, a series of new paintings on canvas by Wellington based artist, Elspeth Shannon.

Artist Statement: "I have always been inspired by 'things botanical', so it’s unsurprising that this current series has veered towards a loose abstract gathering of flower and leaf like forms.
The cyclical nature of plants could be likened to inspiration - it starts with a seed, grows rapidly, buds, blooms (often in glorious abandoned profusion), then gradually withers, but not before throwing out even more seeds to renew the cycle over again.
It's this constant state of flux I've endeavoured to capture."
