Exhibition Opening Saturday 29 May 10.30am for 11.00am

‘The materials I focus on for this exhibition are materials that I have worked with. My evidence of exploration coming together as one exhibition. Copper, magnetite, vermiculite, coal, calcium carbonate and porcelain intersect through my work and have been used separately in the past but here they come together, finding a place alongside each other. This line is also in relation to that of humans interacting with nature. Where humans and nature meet and intersect. Often, we overstep, break or cross this fragile line’. - Ingrid Bolton
