Nick Knight, Roses from my Garden, Friday 8th June, 2018, 2019

This painterly photograph of roses comes from Nick Knight’s critically acclaimed series ‘Roses from my Garden’. Inspired by the work of 16th and 17th century still life painters like Jan Brueghel the Elder and Jan Van Huysum, Knight shot cut roses from his garden on his iPhone, using only natural daylight to illuminate them. He then enlarged the images and filtered them through software that uses AI to fill in the spaces between the pixels. ‘Roses from my Garden references the rich history of classical painting whilst also looking towards the exciting world of new technologies,’ he has said. Lush, delicately coloured and resolutely modern, Knight’s roses are among the most alluring in art history.
