People who have saved this event:


This Hestercombe Gallery exhibition attempts to unearth the unique perspectives and pathways that eight artists have taken in responding to the world around us.


Abandoned landscapes link the work of George Shaw, Mariele Neudecker and Mikhail Karikis. Using Humbrol enamel paint, sculpture, video and sound respectively these artists mine landmarks from the UK to Devil’s Valley in Italy to present us with meticulous and rich evocations of place and memory.

Mary McIntyre and John Brown both use photography, in differing ways, to explore notions of Romanticism, beliefs and landscape. John Newling, however, manipulates the land and horticulture itself to investigate time, currency and value.

Traces of time and materials also link Anna Barriball and Mary Griffiths, who are both interested in the relationship between two-dimensional drawing and three-dimensional space, and the ways in which drawings, in this case use graphite, might be seen as objects.

Featured artists:
Anna Barriball; George Shaw; John Brown; John Newling; Mariele Neudecker; Mary Griffiths; Mary McIntyre; Mikhail Karikis.
