Bell House hosts an exhibition of works of art exploring the meaning of ‘green’ to coincide with the 5oth anniversary of John Berger’s iconic television series Ways of Seeing. Berger encouraged us to look at the world differently and to consider how meaning and ideology are conveyed through visual media.
Green plays a huge part in our lives representing nature, renewal and our environment. It is linked with ideas of politics, relaxation, health, and being fresh or unprocessed. At a time when we are all encouraged to go green it is the perfect colour for the curators Lucy Bainbridge, Dr Alison Green, Ky Lewis, Benjamin Rice & Kim Thornton to examine. More than 30 artists have been invited to present their view of green in all its different contexts using a variety of media.
Curated by Kim Thornton, I will be exhibiting alongside Kim, with Min Angel, Jackie Brown, Leonie Cronin, Cadi Froelich, Nicky Hirst, Kim Shaw, Lucy Soni, Charlotte Squire. Our works will hang on the Landing and in the Lucas Room upstairs.
Open 14/15 and 21/22 May, 11am to 6pm.
