The Iron in the Earth
25 September 2021 – 22 October 2021
Private View: Saturday 25th September 1pm – 3pm & 3.30pm – 5.30pm (by invitation)
In The Iron in the Earth painter and printmaker Katherine Jones brings together a portfolio of eight flower prints alongside new large-scale prints and intimate watercolours.
“You put out your hand to touch the flower – lean forward to smell it – maybe touch it with your lips almost without thinking – or give it to someone to please them. Still – in a way – nobody sees a flower – really – it is so small – we haven’t time – and to see takes time, like to have a friend takes time.”
Georgia O’Keeffe: The Poetry of Things by Elizabeth Hutton Turner
The pansy is held in our hearts, it is the simple open face and divided petal form that reflects our childhood innocence, speaks from Shakespeare of love potions, and is symbolically placed in the rhetoric of feminisation. A painterly crowd of pansy blooms pushes its faces forward. In Katherine’s work, there is a playing of scale, from a tiny complete face, to an enlarged and fragmented petal form.
