Helen Anderson - 'Unhinged'
Wednesday 24 October - Sunday 18 November 2018
"In Al’s shed on the farm are a host of weird and wonderful hinged tools, some of whose function you would not want to guess at. The patina of warm, roughened rust on the cold smooth steel, the glinty eyes and quirky shapes conjure up creatures from the deep or prehistoric birds. I’ve extended my exploration to include other intriguing hinged items such as scissors, glasses and pegs. The graphite and pastel drawings on black watercolour ground on paper celebrate and enliven their oddball characters."
