Tom Lovelace Entractes21 - a Japanese dream installation
Inspired by van Gogh's stay in Arles from 1888 - 1889, this installation by Tom Lovelace responds to the painter's studies of landscape, plants and, in particular, the life of Irises. On 12 May 1888, van Gogh wrote to his brother Theo, describing one of his recent paintings: "A meadow full of very yellow buttercups, a ditch with irises, green leaves, purple flowers, the town in the background, some grey willows, and a strip of blue sky ... A little town surrounded by fields all covered with yellow and purple flowers; - exactly, can't you see it? - like a Japanese dream."
Entractes, inaugurated by British artist Nicky Hirst in September 2018, is a programme of temporary interventions by international artists using the windows of The Eye Sees.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
