An exhibition of small ink and graphite drawings by Catherine Higham exploring temporary land, water and skyscapes opens on Friday 29th November. Work will include drawings of the night sky, tide lines of coal dust, deserted buildings and silted pavements after recent floods.
“I like the simplicity of using a black and white palette and modest, traditional materials such as ink and pencil, particularly now, at a time when we’re constantly bombarded by high-def digital imagery.
Subjects are diverse but all stem from a preoccupation with transient landscapes, most recently being the new landscapes created following local floods. Rivers changed course and new water bodies were created; transforming, shifting and depositing materials.” Catherine Higham, Nov 2019
The show will open next Friday 29th November and continues until Thursday 5th December, from 10.30-17.00 (closed Sunday), in the exhibition space to the rear of ‘All Good Stuff’ in Butcher Works, 72 Arundel Street, Sheffield, S1 2NS. Free entry.
