Small is Beautiful
I had two pieces included in the 38th edition of Flowers Gallery’s annual Small is Beautiful exhibition, in December. Flowers invite contemporary artists working in any media to present works with a fixed economy of scale, each piece measures no more than 7 x 9 inches.
“The paper bag was a favourite with all the judges”, confirms Ishbel Myerscough, “It had a lonely solitude, something I think we all felt a softness for.”
‘It makes something spellbinding and beautiful from distinctly unpromising subject matter – a paper bag sitting on a wonky table in a bare nondescript room. Yet somehow the quality of the light, the limited palette and the delicacy of the handling bring melancholy and poignancy to the scene.’
