‘from slavery to freedom’
beginning around 1995, when Lillian began to explore this genre.
Welcome to this presentation of the life and work of the artist Lillian Delevoryas. Her series of works on Mary Magdalene and Expulsion from Paradise, completed in the final years of her life, are given special prominence here while a permanent and public exhibition space is found for them.
Lillian mastered many techniques, media and styles in her long and productive career, from oils to pastels and watercolours, from painting to appliqué and collage, and from landscapes to still-life, interiors and iconography. Having thoroughly explored a style, subject or medium, she would then move to another until finally, in her last series, she seemed to combine elements from all her preceding work.
Prints of many of her works are available, please enquire. A small exhibition of prints from the Mary Magdalene series may be found at St Margaret’s chapel, Glastonbury, England. A selection of original works are exhibited at The Rose Garden bookshop/gallery, also in Glastonbury, where you can be assured of a warm welcome.
This series is the culmination of a lifetime of over 65 years devoted to art, and I feel grateful to my Creator that he has saved the best for last. ..
We are pleased to offer for sale a small stock of Lillian’s original work, for which we can offer a private viewing in Glastonbury. Many of these works were Lillian’s own favourites which she displayed in her Bristol home.
We can ship worldwide, using bespoke art crates to ensure each picture arrives safely. Please enquire for shipping rates.
