HAWORTH HUMAN SEASONS

Four Seasons fill the measure of the year; There are four seasons in the mind of man: He has his lusty Spring, when fancy clear Takes in all beauty with an easy span: He has his Summer, when luxuriously Spring's honied cud of youthful thought he loves To ruminate, and by such dreaming high Is nearest unto heaven: quiet coves His soul has in its Autumn, when his wings He furleth close; contented so to look On mists in idlenessâ€”to let fair things Pass by unheeded as a threshold brook. He has his Winter too of pale misfeature, Or else he would forego his mortal nature.
- John Keats

The park is Emma Haworth's great motif and theme: an essential part of life and a place where the social and the natural worlds can meet, even in the heart of the city. And its importance has only increased in recent times, with the constraints of Lockdown and Social Isolation.

i carry your heart with me(i carry it in my heart)i am never without it(anywhere i go you go,my dear;and whatever is done by only me is your doing,my darling) i fear no fate(for you are my fate,my sweet)i want no world(for beautiful you are my world,my true) and itâ€™s you are whatever a moon has always meant and whatever a sun will always sing is you here is the deepest secret nobody knows (here is the root of the root and the bud of the bud and the sky of the sky of a tree called life;which grows higher than soul can hope or mind can hide) and this is the wonder that's keeping the stars apart i carry your heart(i carry it in my heart)

THE OAK Live thy Life, Young and old, Like yon oak, Bright in spring, Living gold; Summer-rich Then; and then Autumn-changed Soberer-hued Gold again. All his leaves Fallâ€™n at length, Look, he stands, Trunk and bough Naked strength. - Alfred Tennyson

'I wanted to look at the seasons of life particularly using the park as the setting for my paintings. Especially during this year the park has been a place for people to meet friends, exercise, work, play and escape. I found in the book of Ecclesiastes an interesting passage about how there is " a time to embrace and a time to refrain from embracing...".'
