New Roses at ART LONDON preview

There's Still Life is an International exhibition taking place at Art London in October and Scope Miami in December. A select group of contemporary artists from the US and Europe have been given a simple brief - to take the traditional discipline of Still Life and produce contemporary paintings, drawings and sculpture.

For the show used the 'hybrid tea rose' flower as a starting point. I created 2 handmade 'hybrid' flags, part american flag, part Union Jack. The cross -fertilisation of the flags echo this idea of a flower being a hybrid.

British Rose (above) is a handmade Union Jack, made from a vintage American flag and vintage denim with a blooming rose, Hybrid Rose is part British Ensign, part American flag, made from a very old Ensign Flag, denim, red stripes from a vintage American flag and embroidered linens for a nod to English Tea. Using my dyeing and bleaching technique, the Hybrid Rose is particularly distressed with drips of bleach giving off a naughty decadence.

Preview the works in show on Saturday 19th September in the Bath gallery
Theres a pre-fair preview day at the gallery where a selection of sculpture and paintings especially made for the Still Life show will be available for their first public viewing before they move onto London (my 2 roses will be there).
Come from 11.00am to 7.00pm, have a glass of wine and see for yourself how all the artists have bent, twisted and interpreted the TSL brief.
