Sacred Garden

July 29, 2022 - August 26, 2022

From 30th July 2022 in our Bristol gallery at 30 The Mall, Clifton.

A new exhibition in our Bristol gallery to introduce our newest artist Francesca Owen joining us.

Francesca Owen is a contemporary fine art painter based in Cornwall, close to St. Ives. Recipient of two scholarships to the Slade School of Art, including the Euan Uglow memorial scholarship, Francesca said of her latest collection, “These paintings were made during my time at Tremenheere sculpture gardens. I spent a year painting in the gardens which slowed me down and softened me as a painter and how I work. Initially, it seemed like a huge task, so I concentrated on the pond – seeing the seasons change from spring to summer to winter and back into summer has allowed me to make stories that go deeper, more than a visual representation of a place.”

Director Alicia Livingstone said: “I am so thrilled to welcome such fabulous new artists to our gallery portfolio. I have long admired Francesca’s luscious palette of blues and greens, her strong impasto application of paint and the heady, inviting landscapes she creates.”

Bold and bright floral paintings from Emily Powell join the exhibition – bright pinks, reds and sweeping green leaves bring a sense of summer to Clifton.

Colourful and rich foliage feature in works on paper from Rosa Roberts, in anticipation of her solo exhibition this autumn.

All work is available to view and purchase online and in the gallery. Contact us for further information and enquiries.
