Artist list

Lydia Buxton
'The memories of our youth leave permanent imagery. My most vivid moments lie recessed in shady garden spaces. This body of work is based on those memories - distant and defined - that continue to link us to our earliest experiences of cultivated spaces. I play with places perceived and remembered, of shifting memory and sensory cues. Soft palettes, memories of color contrast darkened silver, quietly tucking metaphors between repeating elements. Green and warm, grey and cloudy – these memories inspired a collection of tactile reminders that bring the garden past into the daily present.'
