The mirror of nature in the Botanical Garden

In February 2022, Mètode launched a competition for artists to illustrate the monograph of its 115th issue, «Beauty and nature», focused on exploring the concept of beauty from a biological perspective. More than one hundred works were submitted, with a wide variety of techniques, styles and approaches. In the end, eight works were chosen to illustrate the cover and articles of the monograph coordinated by the researchers Raquel Ortells and Eduardo M. García Roger. The process of selecting the winners lead to an exhibition that would allow to share with the public at least a part of the creativity inspired by the premise of the issue.

Next Wednesday 22 February at 19h, the exhibition «L'espill de la natura» will be inaugurated atthe “Estufa Freda” showroom of the Botanical Garden of the Universitat de València, and it will remain open until 14 May 2023. Twenty-one works will be exhibited, and all of them reflect each artist's vision of nature; a plural and completely original vision in each piece, as the techniques used range from photography to sculpture, digital drawing, oil on canvas, watercolour and cyanotype.


ScheduleFrom 22 february 2023 to 15 may 2023. Every day at 10:00 to 18:00.
