Angela Stanbridge returns to 78 Derngate for the third time with this exhibition inspired by both the visual symbolism and perpetual cycles of life and death of flowers. Flowers can be powerful; they can produce positive emotional responses from not only those who receive them but also in those who give them. For Angela “Nature is ever changing; there is beauty to behold in every step. Each of us has the choice of simply seeing a flower or something much more. I love to take flowers and enhance their drama, which can allow you to view them in a completely different way”.

Angela has previously exhibited at the Society of Botanical Artists Annual Exhibition in London and has had solo exhibitions at The Rugby Art Gallery and Museum and Nuneaton Art Gallery and Museum. Works in the exhibition are for sale and a selection of prints and cards will be available.

Of this exhibition Ion Severin the artist writes:

“Regeneration is not merely the title of this series of my graphic artworks, but a concept I believe in. Each being has the amazing ability to regenerate and to start afresh. We see this miracle of creation every day. I see and express it in my own style, my own vision. Life is more than the visible and tangible. The most exciting part of the adventure of life is to dare to explore the invisible and the intangible. Through my work I can take you on such adventure.
For me freedom is the supreme goal of all art. I am totally free in my creation and I rejoice in this freedom. I would like to pass on this sensation of freedom to others. I would like you to look beyond the first impression, beyond the frame of the artwork, beyond all boundaries.

My artworks themselves speak much better than I could ever do. as an art lover I am sure you will find your own message and your own meaning in my art.”

Works in the exhibition are for sale. A selection of artist prints will also be available to purchase.
