Art For Cure are very excited to announce an exhibition of new work by the brilliant and hugely talented Jelly Green in the beautiful garden rooms of Somerleyton Hall with outdoor sculpture in the sunken white garden by ethereal sculptor Jeremy Moulsdale.
Jelly Green is a contemporary British painter who divides her time between her studio in Suffolk and London. She has been mentored by international artist Maggi Hambling since she was 16 years old. Her work is inspired by the natural world where she embraces painting in the great outdoors whether the rainforests of Brazil, the iris fields of Cedric Morris’ Benton End or the woodland and forests of her native Suffolk. This is a new body of work inspired by some of our country’s greatest English Country gardens namely Great Dixter designed by the late Christopher Lloyd , Vita Sackville-West’s Sissinghurst , more local to East Anglia Beth Chatto’s garden and inspiration from gardens here in East Anglia.
It is without doubt that Jelly is becoming an exciting new talent in the intenational art world and we are very priviliged to be showing her paintings in the setting of one of the country’s most historic Victorian country houses.
Don’t miss this unique exhibition whether for pleasure, investment or appreciation of this extraordinary young artist .
Jeremy Moulsdale was our best-selling sculptor at Glemham Hall in May 2018 . His sculpture is compatible with the beauty and gentle planting in Somerleyton’s white garden and we are delighted to have a large body of his affordable work to exhibit outdoors.
‘It is a delight for me to take a lump of clay or bag of plaster in my hands. To then mould, form, scrape and carve, until somehow a sculpture appears that speaks to me about the wonder of life. This is the amazing process that inspires me. Most of my work is cast as limited editions of metal resins or bronze, so they can go outdoors or inside and be enjoyed in a garden or natural setting. The work I make is a reflection of this sense of wonder and mystery. I sculpt figures that show a delight in life and have a lightness of spirit expressed in different ways, as they dance under the sky, talk with the birds or catch the falling stars.’
