Modern Victorians: Recording and Classifying
6 March – 9 May 2021

Winged by Clive Wheeler
Is my own personal collection of winged insects, but as a modern Victorian I have avoided the Formaldehyde. Starting with some experiments in watercolour painting to investigate shapes and colours I went on to create new photogram insects using colour photographic paper in the darkroom at Photo Parlour.

A Dissection of the High Street by David J Edge
Is my attempt to separate out the layers of the high street today, to show that there is more to it than moribund commercial enterprises. I have tried to abstract the layers using separations and different processes.
 
Collecting at the Edges by Kester Savage
This body of work, which is ongoing, is site specific and has come about through the simple act of collecting. It celebrates no sprawling wilderness, no national park; just some fields and scrubby woodlands with a brook running through it. It is a quiet reflection on the overlooked plants, sidelined to pockets of urban wilderness where they sustain the biodiversity that is so rapidly diminishing.

The Essence of Trees by Gustavo Espinosa
7 September – 12 October 2020

The essence of trees is wood; heartwood, sapwood and bark… These images are made from photographs of a wide variety of trees: growing trees, dying trees, trees cut down or fallen, rotting wood returning to the earth. The photographs were made on walks in the countryside, in ancient forests and once-landscaped parks.
