About

Infused with a distinctly British sensibility, where politeness lives cheek by jowl with eccentricity, this solo exhibition of Edwina Ashton's work encompasses drawing, sculpture, video and performance. Ashton conjures a darkly humorous world of stilted conversation and genteel misunderstanding, in which humans may interact with her misshapen insects and half realised creatures without batting an eyelid. Her eccentric concoctions of character and narrative serve to ridicule the rules that govern social interaction in a manner that is delicate and demented in equal measure. New works, including her latest animated film '...in a rose collumned forest' are inspired by the life and studies of C19th naturalist Phillip Gosse, and the marine life he studied in Devon's rock pools.
