A Garden on the Wall - Jonathan Grant Gallery, NZ

I have been invited to be part of a group show  ‘A Garden On The Wall‘ at the Jonathan Grant Gallery where I will be showing my work 'The GFC (the Great Floral Crisis)' for the first time in New Zealand.  This work was premiered in London at the Daniel Raphael Gallery earlier this year, and it will be included with three other of my works in this wonderful botanical collection.
  
Gardens have been a visual source of inspiration for artists throughout the ages. From the divinely imagined works of Renaissance painters through to the Impressionists who freed their landscapes from human figures.
 
A Garden On The Wall‘, curated by Jonathan Grant Galleries, has been a year in the making and features works from a range of New Zealand & British artists. The exhibition explores the work of 19th century British artists such as Florence Fitzgerald & George Haité, with their romanticised depictions of gardens, and contrasts this with the often satirical work of contemporary British artist, Richard Adams. Themes of illusion and allegory are also explored in the works of New Zealand artists Raymond Ching & Emma Bass. The exhibition explores a range of mediums, including cast glass, bronze, pastel, watercolour and oil on board works.
