The Precious Hours
17 March - 28 April 2018
Thurs, Fri & Sat 10 – 4 and by appointment
Rabley Drawing Centre | | Marlborough | Wiltshire | SN8 2LW
Katherine Jone’s ‘The Precious Hours’ exhibition brings together a lexicon of motifs to describe the place and the thoughts evoked during the year-long residency at Rabley Drawing Centre and the surrounding farm near Marlborough, Wiltshire.
New prints and works on paper look to cloud formations, farm buildings, fields, rocks, birds, and the man-made Rabley pond. A renowned printmaker, Jones’ collagraphs are layered with subtle marks in a soft pallet reminiscent of the earth and a shepherds warning!
During the year, depictions of scale and space have given way to a focus on the passing of time - both in a domestic and global sense - the visible effects of environmental change making the speed of its passing ever more apparent.
