Colin Lanceley was the rare kind of artist who always pursued beauty. He was inspired by Matisse and Miro, carrying the former’s embrace of colour and latter’s playfulness into his work. In ‘Night Garden’, Lancley composes a dance of technicolour shapes. There is surprise here, as well as a freshness that renews itself after every glance.

In an obituary on the artist, critic John McDonald described Lancley as one of the “few Australian artists… passionately opposed to doom and gloom”. Despite life’s challenges, he always found sprigs of delight. ‘Night Gardens’ beams of this optimism, imagining a garden bed as lively as freeform jazz.

A celebrated figure within Australian art, Lanceley is represented in all state galleries, most regional galleries and internationally at the Metropolitan Museum of Modern Art and the Guggenheim in New York, as well as the Tate, Victoria and Albert Museums in London.

‘Night Garden’ is a scarf designed by Slyvia Lowenstein - the wife of Tom Lowenstein, Lanceley’s accountant - and based on Lanceley’s work. It was produced by Tessitura Serica Antonio Ratti, an internationally renowned Italian silk printing manufacturer in France.

Fit to be worn or displayed, this sumptuous scarf is a stunning representation of Lanceley’s vision. It is available either framed and ready to hang, or unframed and ready to wear. ‘Night Garden’ will delight collectors of Australian contemporary art, as well as admirers of the artist and wearable art.
