Enjoy George Rowlett’s joyful and vibrant paintings of garden designer Sarah Price’s garden.
Spending a period of 15 days in Sarah’s garden last summer, Rowlett has created 19 paintings that are rich orchestrations of colour and energy. Each day, Rowlett saw the garden with fresh eyes, a new challenge of weather and changing light confronted him en plein air. The paintings have little in the way of botanical detail, but through thickly applied paints Rowlett depicts the feeling of the garden that day. Through the energy that oozes from each painting we can share in the thrill of their making.
Sarah Price, who co-designed the 2012 Gardens at London’s Olympic Park, treats her Victorian walled garden as a workshop in which to explore and experiment with her ideas of design and cultivation.
