Acclaimed artist Sharon Field will return to Suki and Hugh Gallery to open her second solo exhibition with the gallery on 2 February 2019.
The exhibition entitled Nature’s Spectral Arch explores aspects of a changed environment around the former slate mining village of Corris, Wales where the artist recently completed a month-long artists residency with Stiwdio Maelor. With time, nature is reclaiming this once degraded landscape with a gentle persistence and dignity.
In characteristic Field style, this body of new works delivers a sublime degree of subtlety and delicacy. And true to form, Sharon’s enquiring mind delves further into her subjects than surface detail conveying fascinating insights into the history of Corris and the cycle of the natural world in the region.
‘I love the rocks and lichens around the village of Corris. Their colours complement each other beautifully. One seemingly so fragile, the other so tough, yet both had survived thousands of years. One through many lifecycles, the other by virtue of its mineral makeup. Every time I went out for a walk, I would find small treasures that told a story of the place they lived’ – Sharon Field
