Small is Beautiful
XXXIX

Overview

Flowers Gallery is pleased to present the 39th edition of the annual Small is Beautiful exhibition, which will take place at the Cork Street gallery and online.

Small is Beautiful was first established at Flowers Gallery in 1974, inviting selected contemporary artists working in any media to present works with a fixed economy of scale, each piece measuring no more than 7 x 9 inches. Continuing in the same spirit to the present day, Small is Beautiful XXXIX presents a rare opportunity to purchase smaller pieces by internationally recognised names and discover new talents.

Exhibiting for the first time in Small is Beautiful are two newly represented artists, Australian painter Aida Tomescu, and Scottish painter Victoria Crowe. Taking part for the 39th time, having exhibited in every edition since 1974, is John Loker who credits the exhibition with often opening up new directions in his work. He says, “I would normally work on a much larger scale, but I have always regarded this show as a way of standing back from familiar methods. An interesting move to come directly from Small is Beautiful is the use of the glass layering. It would not have happened on a larger scale and yet these 7x9 inch pieces have become as important to me as my canvases of 7x9 feet.”

Also having participated since the inaugural exhibition are artist duo Boyd & Evans, who recall: “Making a painting about space on a tiny canvas makes you apply paint in a different way. Stepping aside from our other work is a breath of fresh air and has often suggested future routes for what we might do next.”
