Surface tension

A date for your 2018 diary –

SURFACE TENSION – a joint show with Viv Yankah and Rachael Dickens textiles, ceramics and photographs

New embroidery by Rachael Dickens is created using materials found entirely on the beach. Sea-washed tattered textiles, corroded and oxidised metals and ragged crumbling plastics. This work sits alongside Viv Yankah’s ceramic vessels, inspired by the ancient salt and rust encrusted surfaces of large brightly painted navigation buoys. Both artists explore the aesthetic of the impermanent, the way a material begins to take on the qualities of it’s environment and the changes that surfaces exhibit over time.
