Somerset Soil

The Growing Season: Lines,Levels,Layers.

The details for the exhibition are now up on the Siobhan Davies website 
Here's a link for the entire Human Nature programme spanning the entire year

The beginning of the exploratory work is underway I've become somewhat obsessed with soil. 
Everywhere I go I seem to be gazing at the ground or collecting small bags of wet sticky mud for test pieces, to begin to see and understand how it behaves on paper and canvas.

The colours and textures all differ slightly from each location even though there's very little distance between the areas I'm collecting from. In my next post I will be including some images from the various sites in and around Southwark I have visited so far on my quest for interesting variations.
