The Manoir Gate by Girts Gailans
Tokarta online art gallery
Press Release
Tokarta the online art gallery is literally blooming this spring with a huge selection of glorious floral images on view on the walls of its virtual gallery. Ranging from stunning close-up photographs to vivid abstract works, sculpture and oils, the garden and its contents are the inspiration for many of the artists exhibiting on the Tokarta website.

And it's easy to see why you consider the incredible colours textures and shapes throughout the natural world. Just by hanging a fine art photograph or still life study of flowers on your wall you can bring Mother Nature's beauty and colour inside, brightening the room and lifting your mood.

The stunning floral photographic images by Jan Bickerton combine colour, light and composition to capture often unexpected impressions of an individual flower. Other photographers exhibiting with Tokarta include Girts Gailans whose image of Bamboo is a striking study of strong verticals and light and shade, while The Manoir Gate captures an idyllic overgrown gateway.

Tokarta's sculptors are also looking to the natural world for inspiration as is clear in Andrew Vaccari's Horse Chestnut. This sculpture, made from papier mache and coloured with oil pigment is a wonderfully tactile piece; its outer surface is highly polished with beeswax while the inside of the shell has a luxurious velvety texture making it irresistible to handle.

Ben Bennett is one of many painters choosing to represent nature in an abstract fashion with his work It's a Jungle Out There, in which the artist uses a rich palette of greens to portray what he describes as “somewhere in an English garden”. Celebrating another slice of English country Garden is Summer Breeze in which artist Neil Carroll has captured his memories of summers at home in Monmouthshire.

If you prefer a more impressionistic image then renowned artist John Harris Specializes in what we he calls “imaginative realism”, beautifully illustrated in his work New England which gives a very intimate view of a garden seen through the picket fence. Denise Connell's Balcone dei fiori portrays the beautiful flowers so often seen decorating balconies in Italy – just goes to show what you can do with even the smallest outside space.

Using nature as inspiration is a tradition that runs throughout the history of art from the great artists of the Renaissance and the Dutch still life painters to Monet's Waterlillies and Van Gogh's Sunflowers. One look at Tokarta's website confirms that today's contemporary artists are continuing that tradition, making it the perfect gallery for those if us with a passion for gardening and art.
