Elephant Family Exhibition


As our founder Ruth, is so creative and an artist at heart, All For Love are often asked to create more than just flowers.

This month, Ruth was asked by our lovely friends at Elephant Family to create something rather unique and for a very worthy cause.

Commenting on the commission, Ruth said: "I was absolutely delighted to be asked to take part in this amazing (and cheeky) exhibition curated by @elephantfamily in loving memory and tribute to the wonderful, inspiring Mark Shand. On his travels across India and Indonesia with his elephant Tara, Mark discovered many trinkets, and curious cultural tokens including a series of fertility symbols that were inherited by his daughter. This exhibition sees 60 London artists paint one of the fertility moulds or create their own from scratch, which will be sold at a special auction in aid of the wonderful elephant charity."

The exhibition entitled 'Mark Shand's Adventures and his Cabinet of Curiosities' has been created by his daughter Ayesha Shand who wishes to carry on her father's legacy and all the amazing work he did.

Ruth's thought process of course led her back to flowers creating her own porcelain fertility mould, with pressed flowers and finished with gold leaf detailing, into vases!

A preview evening was hosted at Hauser & Wirth featuring a selected number of the artists, including Ruth, then the grand exhibition evening was held at 32 Portland Place the following week. The evening was a great success and featured on Tatler's ByStander section, Vanity Fair...
