7 June - 20 July 2014
Abigail Reynolds will be showing work in the gallery at Kestle Barton from 7 June. The work on show will be a new step in her established practice of using collaged photographs, collected in books, to converge narratives. Abigail will make enlargements of photographic negatives from a national archive at The Guardian and local archives in Cornwall. This exhibition is called Box A: Accidents, a title derived from one of the archives.
In addition to the exhibition, Abigail Reynolds has also created a site-specific time-based work to be featured in the adjacent wildflower meadow and gardens on 21 June, in collaboration with the St Keverne Band who will be performing Troheaul by Gareth Churcher.
Reynolds, like the neo-romantic artists before her such as Graham Sutherland, John Piper and Paul Nash, uses the British countryside as a site for her exploration of past, present and future.
