An exhibition which brings together work by one of our resident artists, Beverley Thornley, and invited artist Bea Haines. Both explore the use of everyday matter; Bea to gain insights into human desire, fear and mortality, Beverley to convey a sense of land and place.

For ‘Ground Matter’, Beverley is exhibiting a variety of work using pigments from chalkpits in north Kent, beaches on the Atlantic coast of France and journeys in Australia and New Zealand. Bea is exhibiting a series of animal ash prints, created on the electronic muller in Colart’s Innovation and Development Lab, which create a diverse array of marks reminiscent of fingerprints or brain scans.
