"The rainforest of Borneo is spectacular. At Mulu there is a hidden piece of rainforest 'The Garden of Eden' which is growing in a collapsed limestone cave. Looking out of the cave to the Garden of Eden is extraordinary. The cave mouth frames the jewel like image of tropical forest and animals. Bats hang on the ceiling fly and I discover a racer snake and soft shell turtle too!"
John Dyer: In the 1950s simple neutral frames became popular for St Ives artists. John chooses an off-white so the lightest tones appear in the painting. The moulding is a variation of 'Salvator Rosa' from Italy. Hand finished in almond white paint.
