Despite severe weather warnings (the likes of which I’m sure must amuse those readers in countries that regularly have properly severe weather!) my exhibition opened last weekend at The Ropewalk in Barton. It is a very different prospect hanging this work in a gallery space after the spectacular but challenging building that it was originally conceived for.
For the first time you can see the whole of Spurn Cloth #1 (all 4.7 metres of it) hung on a wall rather than in the curved format it had in the lamp room of Spurn Lighthouse. Conversely, Spurn Cloth #2, which hung (all 10 metres of it) in a very tall space half way up the lighthouse, hangs now as a two sided piece.
The gallery put together a lovely little six-sided fold out brochure for the exhibition with a few images of my work and a bit of blurb. I have some spare copies of this so if anyone would like one sending I’d be happy to post one to you. Send me an email with your address or leave a comment.
