In their Margate gallery on King Street Hantverk & Found will be exhibiting The Frogs Who Desired a King by Twinkle Troughton. Using a combination of oils and acrylics on paper, Twinkle’s paintings bridge the past with the present, revealing the contemporary relevance of ancient fables. Specifically, Twinkle’s current work is inspired by the Aesop’s fable The Frogs Who Desired a King, a tale about a pond full of frogs that desire change.
In her new paintings Twinkle uses the frogs’ plight as a way to explore the complexities of revolution, with particular focus on Syria in the present day.
