Anya Gallaccio is a Scottish artist born in 1963. She attended Kingston London and Goldsmith College, University of London. Gallaccio creates installations with organic materials. Red on Green is an installation consisting of 10 thousand red roses arranged lifeless on the floor of a rectangular area. Gallaccio uses the symbol-laden flowers as a starting point for investigating the natural processes of death and decay. Gallaccio has exhibited her work at various times around the world, from the Tate in London, New York, in the Camden Art Centre, in Eastshire Museum, among others. In 2003, Gallaccio was a finalist of the prestigious Turner Prize.
