Art In Full Bloom
Wed 24 May, 2017 @ 10:00 am - 5:30 pm BST
As part of the Chelsea Fringe Festival 2017, South Kensington Gallery McMillan Fine Art is launching its first ever contemporary exhibition of flower paintings. The pop-up group show offers varying depictions of flowers and gardens, journeying from realism, through expressionism, to the abstract. ‘Art in Full Bloom’ aims to allow emerging artists to blossom, and more established artists to flourish in the London art scene.
Our budding artists include:
Amanda Watt – In her first London exhibition since returning from California, Irish ‘Fusionist’ artist Amanda is exhibiting the interior and still life scenes that made her a household name in Los Angeles, San Francisco and New York.
Joan Pontin – Residing in North Wales, Joan is a decorated botanical watercolour artist, and has won a silver-gilt medal from the Royal Horticultural Society for her flower paintings.
Aleksei Shatunov – The highly acclaimed Estonian realist painter follows the traditional Russian school, painting sensitively balanced still lifes in oil.
Claudia Kusznirczuk – This emerging Romanian artist incorporates classical and impressionist styles to create almost abstract paintings based on bold, rich colours.
Fleur Jackson – The Belfast-born artist will be showing her whimsical and thoughtful flower and interior oil paintings.
Sophie Harden – A self-taught artist, Sophie’s passion is nature, which shines through in her latest series of vegetable paintings.
There will also be a number of bronze urns and jardinières by sculptor William Fawke MRBS, including a commission for the ‘Country Life’ Centenary garden, which won a gold medal at the Chelsea Flower Show, 1997.
