Shifting perspectives at Walker
in February 2010
- 23 February 2010
and Mandy Gunn
Works in fibre and glass by skilled artists, who shift perspectives
and manipulate materials while reconsidering space and human intervention.
Ebony Addinsall’s works reflects her fascination with human connection and evoke the notion of
"connectedness" and "unity". Her elegant glass forms are assembled into evocative groups suggesting expansion
and flow through the sum of their parts.
Mandy Gunn works with recycled
materials, as well as those gathered from the natural environment. Most of her materials are cut
by hand and reformed using textile linked techniques and the notion of repetition, creating labour intensive
assemblages, installations and sculpture.
