PLACES, SPACES AND TRACES | SHIPPING FORECAST on LV21

I am delighted to be exhibiting exhibition a selected collection of new work on LV21 in Gravesend. “Places, Spaces, Traces reflects on my Romani heritage and the commonalities we have as people, the need for a place of our own, family and food. With migration, changes in our working lives and increasing opportunities to travel our certainty about who we are and where we fit in is unsure.

Exhibition runs from Saturday 20th November to Sunday 5th December. Further information or book a group or school visit please email thecaptain@lv21.co.uk for available times.

Detail: Shipping Forecast by Cas Holmes

LV21 is less than 20 miles down the road from me so I couldn’t not go to see it! How lucky am I to be living where I do. I was one of the first visitors up the gangway this afternoon and chose to go today because they had a cafe survey about (diminishing) open spaces on the Hoo peninsua which is where I live as well as Cas’s exhibition. The bigger pieces are much lighter in weight than I expected them to be, especially as they are designed to be looked at from both sides, but hold some very poignant words. I was very much drawn to the display of vessels formed around the discarded beakers used by some of the migrants rescued from the English Channel and the shores of Kent.

Painting with Cloth

Exploring the connection between landscape, people and place Cas collects found materials as she goes. marks are then created which combine cloth, paint and stitch with a disregard of the divisions of medium usage and application that often define the world of painting and textiles
