Kington based artist Peter Horrocks is exhibiting a series of paintings that have come about from his fascination with the abstract qualities of fragments in the landscape and in particular geological structures. He uses a range of natural earth pigments, clays, graphite, slate, marble and charcoal dust in his practice. He has mined ochres from 300 feet down the iron ore mine at the Clearwell Caves in the Forest of Dean and has also collected pigments on his travels in the UK and abroad.
Photographer Paul Harris is fascinated in the connections between people and landscape. After a year of living in Powys, he has embarked on a journey along the English/Welsh Border gathering images of the living landscape alongside environmental portraits of those whose connection with the land defines their lives.
One of the photographs Paul has taken is of stone carver Lottie O'Leary who lives at Knucklas. We have Lottie's Portland stone sculpture 'The Lost Words' in our window for this show. Lottie created this piece for an exhibition at The Lettering Arts Trust, Snape Maltings in 2019. It was inspired by the book by Robert Macfarlane and Jackie Morris - The Lost Words, highlighting those words that are disappearing from children lives.
Potter Andrew Richards is showing thrown and hand built forms on which he alters the surface with sedimentary stones and oxides altering their exterior appearance. They are from his Textures from the Earth series reflecting the landscape of the Welsh mountains and coastline.
