FLOWER POWER

Par­nell Gallery, 11-25 Septem­ber

North & South - - Conversation -

Wel­come the be­gin­ning of spring in a burst of colour at the Par­nell Gallery Flower Show. The ex­hi­bi­tion as­sem­bles new works by artists Emma Bass, Lee Dews­nap, Peter Hack­ett and Robert Scriven, who take four very dif­fer­ent ap­proaches to a com­mon medium: Bass ex­plores the flower as a sym­bol of life and death with a life cy­cle that matches our own, self-taught Dews­nap’s oil- on-linen pieces de­pict overblown blooms, Hack­ett presents swathes of flow­ers in tex­tured land­scapes, and Scriven cap­tures the in­tri­ca­cies of each petal and stem, us­ing oil on board.
