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.
