Tulipomania - John Blakemore

About

As an extension to its usual contemporary programme, this summer Argentea Gallery is delighted to have the exceptional opportunity to present the sublime work of renowned photographer John Blakemore.

Comprising 30 hand crafted vintage and near vintage prints, several of which have not been exhibited before, Tulipomania delves into Blakemore's enduring fascination with the tulip flower. Over a twenty-year study, tulips were gathered, arranged and photographed in their numerous states of life and death; fresh, dried, dissected and decayed. From his earlier, ethereal depictions of the simple beauty of a vase of tulips to his sumptuously layered and intricate compositions, these photographs show Blakemore's profound understanding of his subject matter and complete mastery of darkroom printing.
