Happy Easter

Andrew Mockett, Chicken (egg bowl), 2018, signed screen printed woodcut, hand painted with calligraphy inks on Bockingford paper, 30 x 39 cm

This Easter weekend, inspired by Spring Festivals from around the world, the Rebecca Hossack Art Gallery brings you a series of works inspired by the symbols of new life, hope and joy.

Hepzibah Swinford, Summer Garden, 2022, oil on canvas, 122 x 153 cm

Hepzibah Swinford is an artist who captures the beauty and the wonder of the world of flowers. A self-taught painter, with a distinct naive vision, her pictures - whether of gardens or flower-arrangements - have a truth to the particularity of the scene, with each flower presented as it bloomed in life.

Phil Shaw, The Divine Comedy, 2022, eight colour pigment based archival print on Hahnemuhle paper, 90 x 90 cm

Phil Shaw’s The Divine Comedy is a celebration of Dante’s masterwork, in which Dante imagines himself travelling through the Inferno, Purgatorio, and Paradiso, over the course of Easter week 1300. Shaw's hyper-real bookshelf image, constructs an allusive representation of the celestial realms through his ingenious arrangement of suggestive book-titles.

Mexican Artisan Collective, Chicken Baskets, 2018, plastic strip, wire, 22 x 28 cm

Fabricated by hand in Mexico, these darling chicken baskets are made by a collective of artisans working with local prisoners in Oaxaca. The work draws on Mexico's pre-Colombian cultural traditions, using the traditional craft of basket-making, with an effusion of colour, wit, and clever deployment of modern materials.
