For those of you that are new to Sid Dickens work, these small plaster artworks, which he calls 'Memory Blocks' are all hand painted and feature iconography reminiscent of ancient relics and natural beauty.
A collectors dream, a few collections are produced every year with a limited run, each with a new inspiring theme.
This years "Spring 2020 Collection witnesses the renewal and awakening of nature. It revels in the optimism of the season with the familiar sights, sounds, and scents.
Revived by the warmth of the sun, the landscape sheds its blanket of snow. Hellebores emerge from the soil and stretch from their long slumber. Camellias and May bells express their delight to the warming world with vibrant colours and fresh smells. The creatures follow, emerging from the waters, nests, and hollows, as they greet the new season. Finches sing a carefree song from the branches above, while baritone frogs croak from the ponds below. In the revitalizing Spring air, a ballet commences. Butterflies delicately flutter on painted wings and dragonflies dart by in shimmering streaks of colour. Stirred by nature’s performance, a reverie pervades the mind of an observer. A vision of the purest garden where a three-petalled flower blooms into a virtuous trinity. Its vivid beauty is a natural wonder, inspiring a belief that a sacred power lies within all life.
As the flora and fauna of Spring awakens, an uplifting atmosphere is created for all to enjoy. Fresh and rejuvenated, nature awaits the journey ahead. "
