Carolyn Sergeant is a flower and landscape artist of great sensitivity. Her work ranges from freely handled depictions of still life subjects, interiors and the familiar landscapes around her home in the Welsh Marches to detailed depictions of single blooms set against rich, monochrome backgrounds. Carolyn Sergeant has exhibited widely, with major exhibitions at Colnaghi, Hazlitt and the Fine Art Society in recent years.

Poppies are a recurrent theme in Sergeant’s work, the blowsy flowers represented in vibrant and brilliant reds against rich backgrounds. This essay in depicting the poppies conventionally worn in remembrance of the war dead on Armistice Day and Remembrance Sunday offers a very different exercise in the capturing of their papery and plastic nature.
