Roses from my Garden


Roses from my Garden displayed the rose as an enduring symbol of beauty. Photographed on an iPhone, the digital images of roses are enlarged and filtered through software that uses AI to infill the space between pixels, calling to attention the painterly qualities of the blossoms themselves. What appears at first glance to be a historical approach to flower photography is, upon closer inspection, at the very cutting edge of imaging technology. The resulting images are no longer photographs, but rather, digital representations of photographs.

“When I saw my ‘Roses from my Garden’ series at Waddesdon Manor’s Stables Gallery it really felt like the perfect place to exhibit this series so I was truly delighted to be asked to extend and refresh the show for 2021’s season for all those who missed visiting during this years lockdown.” said the artist, Nick Knight
