Lyndsey Ingram presents a group show celebrating the abundance of summer and the keenly observed natural world. As the pace of life has slowed and our routines have shifted in recent months, we have all been able to give more attention to the transformations unfolding in our organic surroundings.
Presented here are prints and works on paper, all concerned with the careful observation of nature. Works by contemporary artists represented by the gallery are shown alongside beautiful examples by well-known masters of printmaking such as David Hockney, Ellsworth Kelly and Kiki Smith, all of whom have taken solace in the beauty and eminence of nature in different ways.
Whether taking cues from nature’s own complex and intricate mark-making, exploring the effects of ever-changing light, or tracing the fluid lines of improbable natural forms, we are captivated by nature’s astounding and necessary beauty, where nothing is superfluous.
The show explores a range of mediums, from traditional approaches to printmaking such as etching, woodcut and lithography to pastel, painting, photography and an iPad drawing.
