For centuries artists and artisans have been inspired by the world’s landscapes. Their interpreted views of their environments have eroded in time and thus changed.
Our landscapes are a legacy of human activity, evolving in unison with the land’s socio-economic and socio-political organisation. Like an extricated ceramic vessel dug up from an archaeological find, we can examine our landscapes similarly. This process is an analysis of material culture and an inquiry into how we live.
With this in mind, artists naturally depict and document their impressions of what they see and feel in their surroundings.
Kellie Miller Arts’ autumn-themed exhibition, Ancient Landscapes, seeks to unearth the beauty beneath the surface of these marked landscapes our ancestors shaped, with new collections from artists Barbara Burns (paintings), Lesley McInally (ceramics), Jules Allan (paintings), and Stephen Murfitt (raku ceramics) – a new artist to KMA.
View the exhibition at Kellie Miller Arts Gallery, 20 Market Street, Brighton between Saturday 17th September and Monday 17th October 2022.
