Latest news on the Rachel Whiteread Print

Galerie Simpson is very proud to present a limited edition print

produced to benefit the Friends of Arnold Circus.


          Rachel Whiteread - 'Hollyhock Seeds' 2012

Inspired by local hollyhock seeds gathered from Arnold Circus, this playful image is rich in subtle variations, a merging of colour and texture. This translates beautifully through the process of silk screen, and the use of a textured paper, results in this gem of a work.

              ‘Hollyhock Seeds’  Fundraising Project                    

During the summer of 2012 a forest of majestic hollyhocks thrived in the gardens of Arnold Circus. They were the inspiration for inviting internationally acclaimed and local artist Rachel Whiteread,  to create the ‘Hollyhock Seeds’ print,  which will also be incorporated in the design of seed packets available next spring.


100% of the profit from this print goes to the Friends of Arnold Circus





                                                          Registered charity no. 1114726

 With great thanks to: Leila’s Shop for generously hosting the print launch, Alice Herrick - Hollyhock Seeds Project Director, and especially to FOAC's award winning head gardner Andrew Willoughby & Jean Locker (FOAC Trustee) for carefully collecting thousands of hollyhock seeds.
