Tony Heywood and Alison Condie describe their work as 'horticultural installation art'. Their area of interest principally concerns new ways of engaging with and representing landscape and nature.
The combination of Heywood’s background in horticulture and anthropology and Condie’s in botany and zoology has resulted in the formulation of a unique series of art works, which are often hard to classify.
Their practice crosses many genres including land art, sculpture, horticulture, painting, video and performance and individual works can often synthesize elements from all of these disciplines in their final realization.
Their works have been shown both nationally and internationally and vary in scale from large-scale public commissions covering many acres to smaller gallery-based work including micro landscapes in petri dishes.
A notable feature of the work is the inclusion of living plant material.
Heywood and Condie are Artists in Residence for the UK’s Royal Horticultural Society 2011/2012. They are currently creating a series of portraits of key British landscapes framed within giant steel chambers combining sculpted landforms with animation, sound and fragrance to create living, immersive environments.
Heywood & Condie live and work together and are based in Paddington, London.
