“The ING show begins with my early explorations of landscape. In the early 1980s I had also become interested in Landsat imagery (photographs taken from satellites 570 miles up in space) and Nazca Indian line drawings and these were to influence both the surface and form of paintings such as A Republic of Insects and Grass, Farralone and Probatra.”
Gardiner’s paintings were exhibited alongside work from the celebrated ING Art collection.
