AboutFor his exhibition at ArtSway Mike Marshall is exhibiting two new video works It Rained and Controlled Burn and a series of new photographic works from the project A Prism Splits Light. These works continue to develop Marshall's investigation of conditions relating to thinking, sensing and activity. Here, this interest is pursued through contrasting notions of organic growth, fire, weather and seasonal change against the persistence of human endeavour and the desire for order and control. Mike Marshall's new work is a co-commission between ArtSway and Stour Valley Arts, with support from the Barker-Mill Foundation.
