Nature goes through cycles of decay and renewal where everything is about deconstruction and reconstruction, very much like humans. We all change, grow, develop behaviours and preferences. This new body of work by Emilie Heurtevent explores these cycles, using methods of marking, dripping, and physical abrasions to reveal the periods of light and dark intrinsic to Nature.
Exhibition opens: 3–5pm Saturday 14 December 2019
