Tuesday 31st October: Jyll Bradley's "Dutch / Light" at Turner Conemporary

Luckily it was a beaming beautiful sunny day for visiting Margate last week to capture Jyll Bradley's "Dutch / Light" at the Turner Contemporary Gallery. The installation is inspired by early Dutch growers pioneering glasshouse technology of leaning glass frames against a south-facing wall. The horticultural revolution 'Dutch Light' was used by a Dutch art collector to be the first person to ripen a pineapple in Europe for whom the piece is dedicated to (Agneta Block). It's like a cosmic conservatory casting geometric strips on the exterior of the seafront gallery. It's hard to tell that I took these photos at the end of October! Colour-therapy can be found anywhere, any time of the year if you search hard enough!
