Original Painting by John Dyer. Juicy Grapes and Shooting Stars, Italy.


Shooting stars in a deep blue Italian sky over Tuscany illuminate the patchwork of fields and olive groves. John's painting is a study of the grape harvest in Italy and was commissioned by the Eden Project for World Food Day and exhibited at the project. The huge juicy grapes hang from the vines as the farmers collected them in baskets. A wonderful painting of rural vineyards in Italy.

The Eden Project commissioned the acclaimed writers group 'Scavel an Gow' to write stories about a series of John's ethnobotanical paintings. This painting was exhibited in an exhibition and the writers performed their stories to groups of people every hour during the exhibition in a specially constructed yurt. A wonderful example of contemporary environmental art and a piece of Cornish art history.
