You wouldn't naturally think that the Bible or your herb garden would provide much inspiration regarding all things hot and heavy. The immensely talented artist, Michelle Henry has explored these two areas to create a unique exhibition entitled, Songs of Songs which comprises of 24 stunning paintings.

Named after a book in the Old Testament, Songs of Songs is centred around the love story expressed through cheeky, and beautiful metaphors relating to flowers, plants, leaves and almost everything else related to the plant world. After this unassuming language is stripped away, parts of the story are enough to turn you beet red as their love becomes crystal clear. Henry is interested in both the tale and the language and has therefore created art to explore the parallels between the leafy language and the passionate story.

Love, lust, passion and plants make for an interesting combo. Believe us, you've never been to an exhibition quite like this before.
