Nerys Johnson – Flower Imagery Over Time

March-May 2011: ‘Nerys Johnson – Flower Imagery Over Time’, a major exhibition mounted at the DLI Museum & Art Gallery, Durham, to mark the tenth anniversary of Nerys’s death. Covering a period of over 30 years, it showed both continuity and change in her approach to her subject matter, through particular flowers which recur in her w­ork. Gladioli, lilies, sunflowers and tulips were depicted in various media: charcoal and ink, watercolours, etchings and oil, as well as the later paintings in gouache. Works sold at the exhibition included those below.
