Capability Now

Capability Now forms part of a national series of events celebrating the 300th anniversary of the birth of Lancelot ‘Capability’ Brown, an architect and designer responsible for the creation of nearly 300 of England’s finest Georgian landscaped parks and gardens.  A few years ago I collaborated with the National Trust and drew in the magnificent Croome Court located in Worcestershire that was designed by Brown.  I remain curious about Brown’s vast contribution and influence upon the British landscape.

In the current Capability Now Exhibition the ground floor of Orleans House is devoted to historical material and social context in relation to Brown.  The characterful upper gallery is lined with contemporary artists pieces, including one of my drawings titled, Radiating History.  The exhibition runs from 13 February – 19 June 2016, open Tuesday to Sunday (including Bank Holidays) 10am to 5pm, Orleans House Gallery, Riverside, Twickenham, TW1 3DJ
