A joint exhibition of ceramics, textiles and photographs by Viv Yankah and Rachael Dickens. Inspired by coast and sea.
Viv Yankah's ceramic vessels are inspired by the ancient salt and rust encrusted surfaces of large brightly painted navigation buoys. This work sits alongside Rachael Dicken's textiles created using materials found entirely on the beach. Sea-washed tattered textiles, corroded and oxidised metals and ragged crumbling plastics. Both artists explore the aesthetic of the impermanent, the way a material begins to take on the qualities of it's environment and the changes that surfaces exhibit over time.
At the Fishslab Gallery in Whistable.
Private view - Friday 26 January 6 -9 pm
