'The Badminton Game' by David Inshaw
David Inshaw is a pre-eminent British artist and also one of the top print artists at Red Rag Gallery and 'The Badminton Game' is one of the top selling prints.
The 'Badminton Game' is an open edition art print which has been reproduced from one of David Inshaw's most admired paintings. The painting is now in the Tate art gallery permanent collection. It was originally called 'Remembering mine the loss is, not the blame', a title taken from a poem by Thomas Hardy: She, To Him. It is one of a number of Inshaw art works influenced by the landscape of Wiltshire and in particular by houses and gardens in Devizes of which Inshaw has written of 'the mystery and wonder I felt all around me in this magic place'.
Inshaw says: 'It was the first picture I made that had a Devizes 'feel' about it, although the elements that go to make up the picture relate to some things that went on before I moved to Devizes in the autumn of 1971. I had moved to Devizes for a number of reasons, to get away from Bristol, a place I love, but the art school where I taught seemed to be taking more and more of my time.
I fell in love with the Downs and the Vale on my first visit. I had made a number of pictures using the garden as a theme. I had also become very interested in the photographic image, and had started to take photographs of my own. I don't know why gardens, my great grandfather was a gardener, and I feel happy surrounded by trees. Trees inspire me very much, and fill me with wonder. My main aim was to produce a picture that held a moment in time, but unlike a photograph, which only records an event. I thought a painting could give a more universal, deeper meaning to that moment by composing one instant from lots of different unrelated moments.'
