Excavations and Estuaries: The Nature of Landscape
24 APRIL – 1 JUNE
"Excavations & Estuaries is a project concerned with the
physical stuff of landscape and our relationship to it.
People don't only reside within and upon our landscape;
we mine, and excavate the land, using it to fulfill a whole
range of material, economic, social and spiritual needs.
The artists, academics and poets involved in this detailed
two-year project explore these themes, through the window
of the territory of North East Lincolnshire and surrounding
counties, to offer visitors a series of questions and
Open Tues - Sat 9 - 5pm. Closed Bank Holidays.
Future Exhibitions Coming Soon
Transformed: Matthew Brewster
4 JUNE – 29 JUNE
Following his hugely successful exhibition at Abbey Walk Gallery Matthew returns with Transformed: paintings that follow the figurative tradition; a visual record of the mind, the body and the human spirit.
His paintings expose us to the essence of contemporary metropolitan living. Sculptural portraits which are at the same time visually striking, reveal to us an awareness of the vulnerability of the body and the suggestion of actions upon it.
David Eddington: Bilgewater
3 JULY – 27 JULY
Abbey Walk Gallery are pleased to welcome David Eddington. An Englishman who now lives and works in America. It is interesting to note an inscription on the back of one of Eddington’s canvases: “I would rather be a painter than a soldier.” Could this mean that he has stopped campaigning for the improvement of social values and now advocates a life of gaiety and distraction? We think not: there is a strong, if overt, political element. The work isn’t designed to reassure, it is about how we deal with today. David’s paintings are more questions than presenting answers. The paintings question our consumer society; they reflect on history and have a strong dialogue with contemporary artists, writers and music.
