National Trust Exhibition Extended
I’m pleased to announce that my exhibition at National Trust Penrhyn Castle, Bangor, Wales has been extended until December 31st 2016.
The work exhibited shows the results of a 6 month Artist Residency at the castle during 2015 – 2016:
‘Penrhyn Castle is a huge, 19th-century fantasy neo-Norman house built on the site of a medieval fortified manor house. It was designed in the 1820s by Thomas Hopper for George Hay Dawkins-Pennant, the heir to the Penrhyn estate following the death of his second cousin, Richard Pennant, who in turn had made his fortune from Jamaican sugar and the nearby Penrhyn slate quarry.
‘Strike Penrhyn’ (2016) is a mixed media installation containing 1 ton of slate, 2 trade union banners (displaying ‘first person’ narratives collected from over 100 members of the local community and painted in collaboration) and a documentary.
