The idea of house and home can conjure up feelings of warmth and shelter. A dwelling - be it cottage or shed, tent or mansion, temporary shack or permanent residence - is usually the basis of comfort and security.

About

Conversely, a derelict or abandoned house is often associated with discomfort, unease and absence.

This exhibition brings together six artists who use the domestic space and objects as a springboard for their ideas. Showing sculpture, installation, prints, drawings, painting and textiles, they explore the idea of ‘house’ in many and various guises.  From Amy Sterly’s ‘speaking’ house prints to miniature staircases, meticulously carved from soap by Felicity Warbrick; from Jeanette Orrell’s exquisitely drawn brushes and wire whisks to Charlotte Squire’s exuberant lampshade installation; from Ainsley Hillard’s subtle suggestions of memory to Frances Carlile’s sculpture and prints, where house merges with landscape. Together they present House, an exhibition which explores the many meanings of home.
