SUBMISSIONS

The idea of The Secret Garden creates a realm of innocence and enchantment. Another worldly dimension to a place intertwined with wonder and growth.

 

The emotional attachment of the artist to the garden, through themes such as seclusion, spirituality and sexuality. It explores not only innocent pleasures but also the more painful thoughts and memories that gardens can evoke.

 

It also focuses on the continuing role of the garden as a metaphor for femininity. This has developed both through the classical tradition and the Christian identification of the enclosed garden, or ‘hortus conclusus’, with the Blessed Virgin.

 

There are many secret places within the garden that are yet to be explored, arched gateways closed or ajar to another mystery location within this mystical place.  Different plants, flowers and foliage undisturbed; the only disarray by the insects, small animals, bad weather or a small number of beings occupying the space momentarily.

 

Pepney Gallery is looking for artist's artworks to illustrate ideas around the above and more in regards to 'The Secret Garden'.

Submissions closed 

Pepney Gallery is looking for artist’s to submit artwork in any medium based closely to the theme -

SUMMERTIME DELIGHTS for our Summer Virtual Exhibition Show; 

SUMMERTIME DELIGHTS is based around the simple pleasures that take place during the summer months.  Mood is lifted by the good weather forming a happier disposition on not only the human race, but on nature and how it blooms.   Sunshine lifts oxytocin, the feel good and love hormone - relationships blossom as well as nature and both coinside with each other.  The sun kissed landscape appear more appealing weather it be the warmth of the countryside or the reflective urban cityscapes enthralling us, the human race.

Everyone, including the species of the land go through a change, weather it be by brighter colours and most definately by hightened mood. 

 

The aesthetic of colour on artworks, for example paintings, appear lighter and highlight the canvas.  A great historic example of this type of light is artist Van Gogh. He used brighter colours and developed his own style of painting, with short brush strokes. The themes he painted likewise changed, with rural labourers giving way to cafés and boulevards, the countryside along the Seine and floral still lifes.  The color yellow was what Van Gogh liked best. In his landscapes, he painted a pure color based on the light. Light in addition to strength and friendship brought love and light to him from the Sun. A contrast to Van Gogh's neutral-colored yellows, blue represents the complementary color.

Artworks can take the form of many different mediums and on the basis of different interpretations of the main theme, be it through concept or illustrative direct take on the theme in various medium(s).
