12th May 2023 - 10th June 2023
Preview: Friday 12th May 17:30 onwards, all welcome!
‘Lode’ is the culmination of years observing and exploring the mining heritage of West Penwith. The windswept cliffs, abandoned mine workings, rocks that ‘bleed’ minerals, and precipitous ledges of fauna, have all been mined for inspiration. This is the rugged, sublime, otherworldly aspect of Cornwall, towering over the tantalising surfing beaches and more than a match for the gaudy hotspots. An edgy landscape loaded with treasure.
Sue Davis, Lesley Harry and Jane Smith have exhibited together for over 6 years and continue to be stimulated by the interplay of their work when shown together. Texture, shadow play, spontaneous marks, and positive and negative space are a constant in their abstracted works that are often linked by a shared colour palette.
The 2023 exhibition ‘Lode’ comprises of a range of new work in ceramic, cast glass, print, ink, mixed media, and paint.
Jane Smith will be showing larger cast glass and ceramic sculptural pieces.
Lesley Harry will be showing work inspired by a residency at Brisons Veor on Cape Cornwall.
Sue Davis will be showing new multi-layered pieces that deny the edge.
