A Brush with Nature - Flappy Lane Fox Art Exhibition
London, United Kingdom
A long-established interior designer, Flappy Lane Fox turned to botanical painting after the death of her son in a car accident twelve years ago. Flappy attended a year’s botanical painting course at The Chelsea Physic Garden where she learned the importance of observing flowers from life and, obtaining a Merit for the course, recognition among her peers followed quickly. Her paintings are delicate, yet possessing strength, whimsical, yet correct in every detail. She seeks fluidity in design, applying a touch of humour; she employs space as a visual pointer and naturalistic colour to bring life and dimension to the genre. ‘Working to capture the fleeting beauty and essence of nature is my motivation now, and observing the miracle of each flower is a gift’, writes Flappy.
So highly regarded is her work, that she was invited, along with other lifelong practitioners in the art of flowers, to contribute to The Highgrove Florilegium, a two-volume illustrated record of all the plants in the Prince of Wales’s garden at Highgrove. Flappy’s background lends authenticity to her work. A knowledgeable gardener, she is married to award-winning garden designer Martin Lane Fox, and her brother-in-law Robin Lane Fox contributes the regular gardening feature in the Financial Times.
Seventeen of the fifty originals in this exhibition have been chosen for reproduction as giclée prints, presented in clear Perspex and these will be for sale, along with the paintings.
Flappy Lane Fox, who is an energetic supporter of the work of the Child Bereavement Charity, has asked for 20% of the proceeds of sales made at this exhibition to be donated to the Charity.
