Bring Me The Horizon

22Jul17

Exhibition openings in my hometown are somewhat few and far between, so it’s pleasing that one such event last weekend was dedicated to a subject that has become an increasing obsession with me, namely the flatlands.

Of the six artists responding “to the idea of flatness” Rhona Fleming’s work was what I found most intriguing, with a number of abstract pieces featuring fragments of objects and ink sealed in resin. Christopher Skinner’s range of lino prints, detailing the telegraph poles that often appear the only sign of life in a otherwise empty land, were also highlights, as were Andrew Olley’s excellent photographs of the largely featureless fens and the architectural detritus of the industry of agriculture that inhabits them, (Andrew also scored extra points for featuring Ongar Hill in one of his chosen shots – which was always going to play well with me). 

Flatlands, the exhibition is on at the Greyfriars Art Space in King’s Lynn and is open until Saturday 29 July 2017, if you’re in the vicinity in the next week I’d recommend a visit.
