This is one of Lisa Pettibone’s pieces on display as part of the Elements of Capability exhibition at Lacock Abbey.
I liked how the warped metal transformed the paths, sky, grass and surrounding vegetation into something quite surreal looking. It’s a bit like how Capability Brown dramatically altered many of the landscapes he was involved with.
The exhibition continues until 22nd May 2016
I discussed winter garden design over at Veg Plotting yesterday. I didn’t mention how art and other structural pieces can be used effectively at this time of year. Lacock Abbey’s Frozen World exhibition last week demonstrated the concept admirably.
I loved how this illumination picked out the detail of the stonework behind the bench. Illuminating Lacock is celebrating 175 years since Fox Talbot announced his photographic negative process which he developed (‘scuse pun) at Lacock Abbey. There’s more on this over at Veg Plotting today.
The illuminations are 4-7pm from now until 9th February 2014.
I visited Lacock with friends recently and there also appeared to be a Morgan owners outing there that day as the National Trust car park was full of them. All were neatly turned out and brightly polished. How the umbrella stayed in place on this particular car when on the move was most intriguing.
