Contemporary artist Mat Collishaw debuts new work alongside existing pieces in this exhibition at Kew.

Drawing on an array of evocative imagery from the natural world, Petrichor will showcase a variety of pioneering techniques and explore the relationship between art and nature, including its ability to impact the way in which we see the world around us.
