An exhibition about ways of seeing – how artists using the clay and minerals of the earth delight in its wonders … and fear for its fragility.
David’s work explores in colours, shapes and decoration, the beauty of our natural world in contrast with the human enterprises that are destroying it. He has also been creating adventurous ceramics in collaborations with musicians as they play the works of Oliver Messiaen and other modern composers.
Marilyn’s ceramics are drawn from the sea and foreshore, many inspired by birds, their characters and plumage. This year, after visits to the wilder landscapes of the north she has been looking at rock forms and fissures, and interpreting them to convey a feeling of the stillness and simplicity of land and space.
Steve is absorbed by the plants and reflections in ponds, and by the people he sees on beaches and in the street, often made into curious shapes. In other paintings, of forests, broken cities and fairground rides, he targets the warmongers and plutocrats for their naked greed.
