Nature Study, Late Summer December 16 2015
Earlier in the year I was delighted to be asked by The Pallant House Gallery in Chichester to produce a new screen print to celebrate the opening of their latest exhibition, David Jones: Vision and Memory.
I've written about the inspiration for this new six colour print in the latest Pallant House Gallery magazine, but you can find out more online.
I was particularly influenced by David Jones' Flora in Calix-Light (1950) and Briar Cup (1932). Whilst working on the print I visited Kettle's Yard, focussing on the collections of natural objects such as pale grey-brown feathers scattered upon a shallow glass dish, a small glass jug of asters beside a twist of seaweed stem and Jim Ede's pebble spiral on a simple wooden table.
