“My work deals with memory, traces and residues of the past. I have always been interested in collecting vintage objects that I incorporate in to my work. Objects with a history, a past life that I have recycled. My mosaics are made from china from various eras that has been chipped, broken and discarded. I have hand cut and reconstructed the fragments. I find the patterns on old china very beautiful and evocative. Flora and fauna to patterns from the 1960’s and 70’s are a constant source of inspiration.”
The Alfred East Gallery has reopened to the public with temporarily reduced opening hours of 11am – 3pm. Entry is FREE Tuesday to Saturday. To begin with, there will be one exhibition at a time. Due to the ongoing situation with Coronavirus, and the guidance from the government, all council hosted events have been cancelled for the foreseeable future. The Manor House Museum will remain closed to the public for the time being.
