Jelly Green at Somerleyton Hall
Jelly Green is a contemporary British painter who divides her time between her studio in Suffolk and London. She has been mentored by international artist Maggi Hambling since she was 16 years old. Made for the passionate and informed gardener, her rich depictions of the lushness of the English summer garden will be on show for two days across the weekend of 15-16th June. Lavish in detail and deeply rich in colour, created in the gardens of Sissinghurst, Great Dixter, Benton End and Somerleyton itself, Jelly’s work ventures to the heart of the botanical world. With Jelly’s signature rich brushstrokes, these are paintings of classical skill and contemporary spirit.
Joining Jelly is celebrated sculptor Jeremy Moulsdale. His work is a perfect match for the romantic and gentle planting of Somerleyton’s sunken white garden. His limited edition bronze and resin figures have a lightness of spirit as they play under the sky. Jeremy similarly has a deep connection with the natural world having grown up in rural Shropshire and North Wales, he now works from his riverside studio in Sussex, selling work to many public and private collections.
