During constructing and forming his garden in Dungeness in 1989/90, Derek Jarman also created these paintings that can be seen in the exhibition Shadow Is the Queen of Colour at Amanda Wilkinson Gallery until 22 June.
The two paintings Matthew, Mark, Luke and John (1989) and Flesh Tint (1990) are the only work in this collection without black tar. They represent the central theme of The Garden. Further paintings are also made with embedded objects found on Dungeness beach and covered with black tar, like Ship in Bottle (1989), Crucifixion (1989) and others.
The gallery dedicates this exhibition to the memory of Derek Jarman’s companion and partner Keith Collins.
