KEVIN DUTTON

Kevin produces limited edition photographic prints of the plants and flowers he grows in his garden and allotment in South London. His work has been exhibited in group and solo shows in the UK and abroad.

Kevin was born in Southampton in 1965 and studied at Bretton Hall College, Yorkshire. Inspired by centuries of artistic creation - the simple but precise description of the botanical illustration and the rich complexity of the painted floral still life - Kevin creates studies which feel both classical and contemporary. Fascinated by photographic description, he uses high resolution equipment to give the images exceptional detail and the changing seasons provide a constant source of new subject matter. Some images show conventional compositions but with surprising plant choices, others reveal entire plants, roots and all, carefully recorded before returning back to the soil.
