Nature, folklore, dreamworlds, myth, folk song, colour, form, patterns and forces in nature are all key inspirations for this new joint exhibition by Ruth Brumby and Gemma Khawaja. Gemma & Ruth both work with paper, using it in very different yet complementary ways.
Both artists are based in North Norfolk and take inspiration and ideas from shared walks and talks together within this varied landscape.
Hinterland is an exploration of in-between spaces such as borders, boundaries, shorelines and other such places in nature. The work presented also explores more abstract ideas of hinterlands, such as areas lying beyond what is visible or known, the blurred lines between folklore, myth and reality, life and death or dream and consciousness.
