In the Garden of the Sun: Glass Cloud Gallery, London

10 September - 19 October 2020
In the Garden of the Sun presents a wilderness across two windows, one at dawn and one at dusk - the Earth's most enchanting times of day. The work is inspired by Icelandic landscapes and Luxton's enduring influences of Art Nouveau and Alphonse Mucha's Times of Day lithographs, and the natural symmetry employed through painting history to convey a sense of omnipotent power over the land. The installation is an expanded painting featuring motifs, techniques and textures found in Luxton's linen paintings. A puddle-shaped mirror sits on a carpet of moss and lichen, and arches drift in the sky as portals from one unknown world to another.
