Secrets Disclosed: 7 February - 1 March 2015
'Secrets Disclosed' features photographer Barrie Dale and ceramicist Crabby Taylor, both of whom reveal a connectedness to nature. Barrie photographs mainly small commonplace plants, many usually regarded as weeds, but his close attention uncovers a surprising richness and abundant opportunities for abstraction. Crabby employs techniques thousands of years old, dating back to man’s first vessels. Her soft, muted colour palette is reminiscent of nature's own colours and, unlike modern mass-produced items, the hand of the maker is always evident.
