A Bloomsbury Journey
Works by Peter Thornborough & Liza Krügermeier. 30. August – 25. September 2014
The joint exhibition of Peter Thornborough and Liza Krügermeier, ‘A Bloomsbury Journey’, opens on Saturday August 30th. The event takes place from 11.00 to 16.00.
The Australian artist Peter Thornborough and Danish painter Liza Krügermeier have a shared interest in the Bloomsbury group, which was an influential group of English artists, writers, intellectuals and philosophers. The members of the group lived, worked or studied together near Bloomsbury in London during the first half of the 20th century. The best known members are the sisters, Vanessa Bell and Virginia Woolf; Duncan Grant, John Maynard Keynes, Lytton Strachey, Roger Fry and E. M. Forster.
‘A Bloomsbury Journey’ is inspired by the characters of the group, the relationships between them and the places where they lived and worked.
Peter Thornborough was born in Sydney, Australia, where he attended the East Sydney College of Art, receiving a Painting Diploma in Fine Art. Later, he settled in London working in advertising as an art director and illustrator. However, since 2001, Peter Thornborough has worked exclusively as a full time painter and his work has been exhibited in major galleries in and around London. His work has also been selected for the highly competitive Summer Exhibition at London’s Royal Academy.
Liza Krügermeier was born in Denmark in 1974. She specializes in studies and images of fruits and vegetables. In the exhibition ‘A Bloomsbury Journey’ she shows a different side to her artistic work, interweaving her favourite subject in a colourful way with aspects of the surroundings and life amongst the Bloomsbury characters.
