Day Gallery ~ Enduring Beauty
Day Gallery, Blackheath
In these days of uncertainty I lost myself in inspirational reflection of historic times, forgotten icons of beauty that had many stories to tell if they could talk; and the beauty of flowers that would ornament ancient sculptures and artefacts.
The ancient Romans and Greeks believed that objects, plants, places and creatures possessed a distinct soul - a spiritual essence - which they called animism.
My new series of paintings is inspired by this idea of animism. I have merged images from ancient Roman sculpture with flowers to express reverence for the ancient world. They experimented with ways of representing the human body, both as object of beauty and of meaning. The power of Greek and Roman female sculptures, combined with flowers, evokes both strength and beauty and therefore has lasting aesthetic value.
The erosion and disfigurement throughout the millennia does not diminish the beauty and resilience of these statues. By adding an embellishment of flowers I seek to imbue this lasting beauty with added meaning.
The Exhibition is viewable by appointment only (until COVID restrictions are lifted).
