Flaming June Exhibition

Posted in Exhibitions, Rosedale the locale by Kate Jones on May 31, 2011

This show make no direct reference to Flaming June by Lord Leighton, though we do have a feast of colour and imagery drawn from the amazing wealth of colour and forms found in the garden. The weather looks set to turn and make it a ‘Flaming June’ in temperature too. Lets hope so !

Images below of snaps taken in the garden and the mass of tumbling life that has provided much of the inspiration for this very different body of work.

    How these shots from your garden reminds me of an era of Arts and Crafts. Sensitive, yet groundbreaking.

    Just now I’m sitting here in Denmark looking at a new stamp from Royal Mail showing the poetic design of John Henry Dearle from 1901.

    How we look forward to study your new masterpieces.
