standing still a shared aesthetic
14 March - 10 May 2020
Standing Still brings together three artists who share similar principles linking to the natural environment. Each artist brings to the exhibition their very individual approaches; selecting materials and processes they have both passion for and great skill in working with, to create their desired outcomes. Nick Davies, Sasha Kingston and Jayne Walker find inspiration from the coastal geology of South and West Wales - exploring the rock strata, geographical contours, surfaces shaped by weathering and erosion - the rhythms and cycles associated with the natural world. The artists have kept a dialogue throughout their research and making stages, sharing experiences, observations, experiments with materials. This energy and enthusiasm is evident in the first test pieces and artworks emerging from the artists studios. The Makers Guild Wales is delighted to be launching this exciting exhibition in March. A programme of workshops linked to Standing Still will be available - opportunities for school children, teachers, students and the wider public to explore ideas, materials and process. Further details will be advertised here and on our Workshops page.
