Product description

Frances Lincoln Ltd 2003. Large hardback with unclipped dust jacket in very good used condition - some light marking to jacket and light wear/creasing to edges of jacket; Also some very light wear to edges of boards - rest of book is fine.
Jo Self spent two years as artist-in-residence at Kew Gardens, a position created specially for her. Her bold, deceptively simple large-scale paintings of flowers are a striking blend of the sensuous and the symbolic. Self has been painting flowers since 1993, and this book is a record and an exploration of her work. The first part of the book contains four essays, each discussing a different aspect of Self's work. The contributors will be: the author and broadcaster Will Self - Jo Self's brother-in-law - the garden writer Elspeth Thomspon and the art critic Sarah Kent. Also included is a revealing interview with the artist by the critic Cathy Courtney. The second part of the book contains full-colour reproductions Jo Self's bold, compelling paintings. This book also features newly commissioned photographs of Jo's studio and garden in South London.
