EARTH PULSE
An exhibition by three fine artists
who respond to the ebb and flow of the
natural world

2nd - 7th JUNE 2017

Jane Burden, in hand built ceramic
structures, works to capture the dynamic
of movement within the earth itself.
Helen Simpson’s large scale paintings
allow us to feel the underlying energy
within the sinuous and sensuous
delicacy of leaf and petal.
Imogen Bittner uses recycled fabric and
anything to hand to create images
that reflect the shimmers of colour, light
and rhythm in her local landscape.
