For the last month of our beautiful Radiance show, Sladers Yard is delighted to introduce the oil and plaster paintings of Amanda Wallwork, whose rich earth colours and archaeologically inspired markings bring an awareness of deep history and ancient dawns. Amanda is a highly respected artist whose practice centres on a series of research projects specifically concerned with the archaeology and geology of place. Underpinning all her work is extensive research, including dialogue with earth scientists and investigative walking. She is interested in how and why land has been used and shaped, how people move through it, the impact we have and the traces we leave behind.
Reminiscent also of planets and ancient hearths, the light of knowledge that mapping brought, the turning of the seasons and the passing of time, Amanda Wallwork’s paintings are textured, deeply satisfying objects of contemplation.
In celebration of the bright light pouring in over the last few days, parts of the exhibition have been rehung, emphasising different works and connections between the works.
A brand new Far East Low Table by Petter Southall is here temporarily before being delivered and a wonderful new Gallery Dining Table in solid oak which arrived just before Christmas…
