The Signification of the Poppy series commemorating #WW1 100 years http://ow.ly/zVOpK
First exhibited as a series in a public exhibition held in Brighton’s central Jubilee Library in 2008.
Quote from the press release –
An exhibition of exquisite paintings depicting Poppies in traditional and contemporary settings by local artist Jacqueline Hammond will emblazon the windows of Brighton’s Jubilee Library from 13-26 October, 2008. The series of ten works combine the beauty of fields of flowers with the symbolic role of the Poppy in association with war throughout history. As well as being a topical subject – with Remembrance Day around the corner – the positioning of the art in a public space rather than the confines of a hidden gallery seeks to include and draw in a wider audience to raise collective awareness and provoke thought.
