As we welcome in the New Year, with winter still on our doorstep why not wrap up with something from our Box Gallery this January. Jane Withers and Michael Hanmer of Janie Knitted Textiles will be providing machine knitted wraps. They use lambswool and British wool on hand operated knitting machines to create contemporary fabrics. If a hat is more your thing, we have Barbara Cassell’s wool hats. Her handmade hats are decorated with machine and hand embroidery

I’m fascinated by the way a space can affect a person it’s that interaction that draws me to the communal and transients places within our cities, which are often built for function not beauty.
To understand these spaces I go back to the basics, exploring weight, line, form, tension and light dismantling the structure extracting key elements, and distilling them into purified line, and form. This process of pulling apart, layering and removing helps me to understand what I’m seeing and what it is important to me.
The results can be complex, but they are the real and imagined interactions with that space.
SPACE URCHINS, DARK MATTER AND POSITIVE ENERGIES.
For thousands of years humankind has pondered the mysteries of the Universe. Through mathematical calculations many truths have been determined. Philosophers have imagined and declared some bizarre and unlikely theories about the Cosmos, and as Space Technology has advanced, some speculations have become plausible. The world of Science Fiction has become indistinguishable from main stream Cosmolology, Astro- physics and Mathematics.
I use my Art work as a vehicle to applaud and join in with these exciting ways of considering our Universe.
Black Holes, Parallel Galaxies and Dark Matter are phenomena that I have been attempting to represent through my drawings and printmaking.
