Currently at CAMPLE LINE is an exhibition of new work by Nottingham-based artist Yelena Popova, entitled Made Ground.

The exhibition brings together a new group of paintings, for which Yelena has used soil and rock that she collected locally to Cample. A new substantial painting installation, it continues and extends a wider body of ‘post-petrochemical paintings’, which she began in 2017 during a residency at Girton College, Cambridge. Installed by Yelena in our upstairs space, these new paintings are to date her most sustained exploration of a place through soil, stone, pigment, gesture and colour.

Yelena also presents two textile works in our downstairs spaces, including a hand-knitted piece that references the extensive coniferous plantations that are a major feature of the local working landscape and uses a variation of Sanquhar Knit, a distinctive geometric knitting pattern that originated in the town of Sanquhar in Dumfries & Galloway in the 17th century.
