About this work of Art
Indian Summer Original Acrylic Painting framed (floating) on white ash wood
Acrylic Paint on Canvas
Size: H 69 cm x W 93 cm
Indian Summer is an original acrylic abstract floral painting by Philippa Jeffrey. Evocative of balmy summer evenings, the colours are softened and the forms whimsical and romanticised. All 11 paintings that comprise Hidden Garden start as a botanical illustration but with each layer of paint they become abstracted – a series of mark making, spots and stripes.
Philippa Jeffrey studied Fine Art and History of Art at Leeds University in 1996. Philippa then moved to London where she worked as a Fashion Producer for Conde Nast Publications. A couple of years ago Philippa returned to her roots and the ex-editor became an artist, now painting from her Oxfordshire studio. Using botanical prints as a starting point, Philippa has developed a unique visual language, celebrating layers of colour, pattern and mark-making. Wychwood Art are proud to showcase a series of textured, painterly landscapes – abstracted botanical paintings. A visual candy as opposed to an overly verbalised aesthetic. A decade of exposure within the world of fashion and magazines has undoubtedly informed Philippa’s vision – you only need to look to the catwalk or glossy journals to see a similarly calculated approach – a deliberate and conscious decision to use a particular colour, a specific form. She uses water based paints and a combination of board and canvas.
