    Creagh says the idea for the project came from a series of felt-tip pen drawings she had made. "For years I had been doodling ‘flowers’, a collection of overlapping circles which, once I had started I discovered everywhere;

    In 1932, the Leica 35mm helped Henri Cartier-Bresson invent the ‘decisive moment’. In 2010, digital manipulation has helped persuade Lisa Creagh that we’re entering a new phase. “Digital technology is changing photography,”

    Time Out London, August 19th 2010
    Now here’s a title that defied argument. I’ve never visited the Chelsea Flower Show, but I’m prepared to bet it contains no suicidal Japanese writers or tempestuous flower-decked diaries, and precious few pickled plants either, come to that.

Flowers

Little Black Gallery

Lisa Creagh & Hiroyuki Arakawa, 30 April to 1 June 2013 at The Little Black Gallery


His debut London exhibition, Hiroyuki Arakawa was born in Japan and began working as a photographer’s assistant in the 1980’s. He then established his own photography studio becoming a leading portrait photographer. His 'flowers' series of photographs are an intimate study of white flowers, including Tea Roses, Orchids and Astor Lilies. He began the collection in honour of his mother –a traditional Master of Flower Arrangement and the Tea Ceremony. The images were used by designer Yohji Yamamoto on his dresses and skirts for his 2011/12 collection shown in Paris.

Following on from her successful exhibition Natural Beauty in 2011, Lisa Creagh is returning to The Little Black Gallery with images from her Instant Garden series. Graduating with a Masters in Photography from Brighton University, she was one of the founding members of The Brighton Photo Fringe. Her ‘Instant Garden’ series was inspired, in part, by Dutch Flower paintings; in particular the work of Rachel Ruysch (1664 – 1750). Creagh writes, “The Instant Garden is a new kind of photograph, one ‘made’ not ‘taken’, but no less beautiful for being artificially ‘natural’." She has been awarded two Arts Council of England ‘Artist Individual Awards’ for the series and has been further acknowledged with recently being awarded a development grant by the Arts Council of England.

Flowers runs from 30 April to 1 June 2013 as part of Chelsea Fringe 2013, to coincide with Chelsea Flower Show. The show is sponsored by Scent by Design who will transform the gallery into a floral heaven, with a
pop-up shop from 21-25 May at The Little Black Gallery.
