The brush smoothly slides over the canvas, the touches are fast, the colour is vivid and full-bodied. White, red, blue, gold and silver. And a lot of heart. That of Garth Speight which gives life to a triumphant nature of water lilies, irises, wildflowers, woods and birds.
A wonderful garden that materializes in the 50 paintings that "knead" the soul of the Canadian artist, made of boundless landscapes, with the Roman one of Villa Torlonia and the Casina delle Civette, the small architectural jewel which extraordinary multi-colored windows interact deeply and complete the paintings on display.
Every flower, every forest, every bird is a "window" open to the explosive and colourful universe of the artist and his particular and intimate interpretation of nature that does not stop at the brushstroke, but overflows from the canvas to form a small self-sufficient world: its creation becomes one with the frame that Speight personally carves.
Garth Speight has been living and working in Canada and Italy for over 40 years. His works are exhibited in private and public collections in Canada, Australia, Africa, China, USA and Europe.
The exhibition is enriched by a series of educational workshops on vegetable prints for adults and children, kokedama and micro-gardens.
