Opens Saturday 13thOctober 2018, Private View 2 – 5pm

Thin Places are places where the veil between the temporal and the spiritual worlds are tissue-thin, and in such places, we may be able to experience glimpses of the spiritual dimension.

Artists Gill Ayre and Caryl Beach explore what this means to them in their work. Always rooted in their experience of landscape, their work touches on these shifts in perception, where mundanity gives way to mystery.

 Gill Ayre www.gillayre.co.uk :

‘Woodlands, marshlands and mountains are places where I can feel a shift in my experience of the word, places of dissemblance and mystery. 

Trees are both rooted in the earth, with their branches stretching towards the heavens, and woodlands are associated with magic and myth, tree spirits and faeries.  

Marshlands are transitional, threshold places, where substance becomes insubstantial, where earth melts into water.

Mountains, shrouded in mist and cloud, are places of mystery, are often seen as spiritual places, where we can glimpse something of the eternal.

Places where you can lose yourself, in both senses of the word – these are my inspirations.’

Caryl Beach www.carylbeach.org :

‘Landscape: where land meets sea is my thin place. A calm, mysterious and sometimes overwhelmingly powerful place.

A place of wonderment and inspiration where the elements of nature vie for dominance.

My work in video, photography and mixed media strive to represent the transient and enigmatic nature of our world, whose beauty lies in imperfection and impermanence. ‘
