Fans and newbie collectors will be thrilled to explore the Frogman art on display at the Marcus Ashley Gallery. The staff is well aware of Tim “Frogman” Cotterill’s work, and you can walk up to any of the art consultants for help with deciding on the right art pieces for a space you have in mind.
When asked what inspired him to create Lords & Ladies, Frogman said, “I had some free time when I traveled England this year, so I decided to visit the beautiful Leicestershire countryside and woodland that my friends and I used to play in as kids and build dens. Walking along a footpath by a fast-flowing brook, a bright cluster of berries caught my eye. I remember them as a kid as a Cuckoo Pint plant often called Lords and Ladies.”
In this sculpture, a frog balances itself on the pretty flower while admiring a ladybug just out of reach. Frogman deftly recreates the bright ruby red clusters of the Lords and Ladies plant, which serves as the perfect prop for the silvery frog and bright green ladybug. Lords & Ladies is the ideal piece for collectors who share a passion for nature and its little creatures.
