Photography and Digital Art in the Marches
Local Photographers and Digital Artists are exhibiting their work much of which is inspired by the local environment and scenery. The exhibition runs until 22nd November.
Alex Pownall, a documentary photographer from the Forest of Dean has a series reflecting the subtle magic of the Severn Estuary. She writes: “The photographs on display are part of an exhibition series visualising the shifting tides and play of light from dawn to dusk on the Severn Estuary. The images are printed on archival paper, mounted onto board and framed in non-reflective glass to highlight the textural detail of the water surface and lime-washed beechwood.”
Also from the Forest of Dean is Ian Gorton, whose digitally enhanced images of the local area are a colourful delight. Chris Hall, artist and poet from Abergavenny, has a short sequence of digital photomontages entitled “Tales of Old Tilery” and Lynne Owens, Phil Brown and Tony Williams, photographs and digital images based on themes of water, light and heritage.
Mark Hudson, a printer from Artsite 3 in Hereford features a collection of artist’s books. He says of his practice: “In my work I try to explore notions of place, history, migration and travel. I am interested in making connections and narratives surrounding everyday things, people and their common histories through the use of photography, video, sound recording, print, books and installation.
I’ve been making Artist’s Books for over thirty years now. I’m interested in combining traditional methods and media such as gilding and letterpress with photographic, digital and sculptural elements.
Examples of my work are held in a number of collections including Manchester Metropolitan University and Tate Gallery.”
