Spirits of the Garden with Margaux Carpentier
09 November 2023
The vibrant painting acts as a magnifying glass, inviting the spectator to notice, look closer and get lost in a luxuriant reverie. Some of the featured plants are; echinacea, marigold, yarrow, meadowsweet, elderflower, dandelion, cleavers, lavender, camomile, crab apples and sage.
Spirits of the Garden was painted by Margaux herself over 10 incredibly sunny September days. She used mainly spray paint with touches created with markers and paint sticks. Margaux enjoyed working at Homerton Hospital very much and felt incredibly grateful to come here every day for a short period simply to paint.
