Gardens have been a visual source of inspiration for artists throughout the ages. From the divinely imagined works of Renaissance painters through to the Impressionists who freed their landscapes from human figures.

‘A Garden On The Wall‘, curated by Jonathan Grant Galleries, has been a year in the making and features works from a range of New Zealand & British artists. The exhibition explores the work of 19th century British artists such as Florence Fitzgerald & George Haité, with their romanticised depictions of gardens, and contrasts this with the often satirical work of contemporary British artist, Richard Adams.

Themes of illusion and allegory are also explored in the works of New Zealand artists Ray Ching & Emma Bass. The exhibition explores a range of mediums, including cast glass, bronze, pastel, watercolour and oil on board works.
