Paintings from a Poisoned Garden


Jo Self whose visionary flower paintings reveal entire universes in the fleshy convolutions of stamen and petal, has embarked on a radical new direction. Her new exhibition is nothing less than an intense compression of her life and work into the smallest museum London has ever seen, and an accompanying book. From her childhood as the daughter of one of ITN's first news cameramen, to her time painting the Dalai Lama's garden, Self's take on an extraordinary and creative life produces an artwork that is as diverting as it is original. Will Self 198 Contemporary Arts and Learning is delighted to present this exhibition by a pre-eminent local artist and long time friend of the gallery.
