The connecting theme of this exhibition of Martin’s paintings with Laurel’s ceramics is to do with their individual ways of seeing over and beneath the landscape, discovering new tracks – picking over the often hidden bones of a place, and seeking to make intuitive, grounded work, a hand-formed land in paint and clay.

Martin Procter has exhibited widely in Britain and the United States; the thirty six paintings in this exhibition reflect his love of wild places, climbing, hillwalking, and a fascination with the marks man makes on the underlying form and structure of the landscape. He has an academic background in geography, a career in architecture and building, and has been painting full time since 1996; he lives on Dartmoor, and is a SWAc member.

Laurel Keeley has an academic background in the arts and literature, but long ago started making ceramics – an affair of the heart with clay and pots.

She established her first pottery in Exeter in 1979, winning many awards; Laurel is a SWAc founder member, a member of the Devon Guild, and exhibits and sells her ceramics nationally.
