An Exhibition of landscapes by Virginia Ray

About

Virginia’s family has lived and worked for generations in the landscape of North Yorkshire and it is to this landscape that Virginia returns, again and again, as it is in this landscape that she has a real sense of belonging and identity.

In this ‘Area of Outstanding Beauty’ Virginia sees not only rolling hills and vegetation but also a layering of time. She is interested in how the landscape of Yorkshire has evolved and continues to evolve and regenerate through natural and human industrial processes. Through an exploration of her connections to this landscape, Virginia regards her work as a form of emotional archaeology.

In the studio, observation, research and imagination merge with her memories. By using old personal and found photographs and materials gathered from the landscape, Virginia seeks to create an interwoven layer of texture, colour, history, memory and time.

Virginia has an MA in Fine Art from the University of Creative Arts, Farnham.
