‘Do remember they can’t cancel the spring’, said revered British artist David Hockney back in March as the world went into lockdown. Hockney is one of the artists celebrating the enduring beauty of nature at a new exhibition in Mayfair.
Mayfair is synonymous with art and culture, housing some of the finest galleries and auction houses in its historic streets. Not only has the neighbourhood inspired some of the greatest writers and artists of all time, but it has a reputation for showing some of the most exciting and cutting edge exhibitions in town.
Lindsey Ingram, on Bourdon Street, Mayfair, presents ‘Nature Observed’, a group show celebrating the abundance of summer and the keenly observed natural world. The exhibition has special poignancy in these times, as Ingram says: ‘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.’
Works by contemporary artists are shown alongside ‘masters of printmaking’ such as David Hockney, Ellsworth Kelly and Kiki Smith. 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.
