Exhibition of mixed media work relating to architectural decay by Fritz Duffy, Iain Herdman & Maya Ramsay. Includes surfaces lifted from the derelict buildings of Bletchley Park and the walls of Jimi Hendrix's London home.

About

The works in Passage of Time will include surfaces lifted from the derelict buildings of Bletchley Park and the walls of Jimi Hendrix’s London home.

‘Everywhere we go, all around us, are traces of the past. As we hurry by, intent upon some task, we usually overlook these traces. However, there is a hidden beauty to be found inscribed on the surface of humble things, things that we might not consider looking at with an aesthetic eye: old walls, crumbling plaster, stains, crusts of dirt, discarded packaging materials. 
It is from these marginalised sources that Fritz Duffy, Iain Herdman and Maya Ramsay make their art. And the result is something transformative. Once we have seen their art we return to the everyday world more aware of the visual beauty around us, more conscious of the traces of time on everything that surrounds us and, indeed, on ourselves..
All three artists cross boundaries between the found and the made, between the past and the present, between fragility and permanence. They occupy an indeterminate region between decay and regeneration, ugliness and beauty, the discarded and the cherished.
Combined together, in this exhibition, they resonate with each other, creating a profound contemplative experience, a kind of visual music, a ghost trio, whose resonances haunt us long after we have left the gallery.’
