The Garden Party 13 July - 27 July 2024

We are delighted to introduce to you ‘The Garden Party’ by Victoria Webster. 

In a soft gentle palette, these are intricate flower and garden paintings complex with fine detail and fragile beauty.  Her narrative paintings are full of irreverence and playfulness.

‘The Garden Party’ celebrates all things that inhabit a garden. It delights in overlooked relationships, symbiosis and harmony. Nature’s amazing structures, be they insect, mollusc, weed or turnip, are all given a starring role, as they go about their business with a gentle, quiet industry. The gardener’s presence is almost incidental to the main events in the foreground – small things are equal to large. Everything exists in this delicate and inconspicuous world of constant conversations. 

Victoria was born and raised in the beautiful city of Chester and went on to study illustration at university, receiving a BA Honours degree. Following her graduation, she enjoyed many years working as an illustrator for Saatchi and Saatchi in New Zealand and Australia. She has also had the privilege of her own range of greetings cards with Woodmansterne. Her intricately detailed paintings are held in private collections around the world.

An old farm in Hertfordshire is now home, where Victoria is surrounded by inspiration through its gardens, wildflower meadows and ponds. It is in a country setting that her imagination can run free; her paintings capture moments in time and the small conversations between insects, birds and figures that occupy the space. Seeking the overlooked and celebrating the virtues of the insignificant, it is as though we are seeing nature’s beauty afresh when we look at her paintings.
