FRAGMENTS is an exhibition of new mixed media and textile art work inspired by the artists’ responses to the traces left by industrial and social heritage in Stockport and the surrounding area.
Helen Conway’s work takes the ugliness of graffiti and decaying buildings and transforms it into beauty. Harsh city environments are made soft with cloth, paper, and stitch. Her work challenges the viewer to see their surroundings differently and to see the potential in a different point of view.
Leah Higgins work explores three areas; contemporary working structures that divide the landscape into crisp lines and shapes, abandoned older structures that through a process of decay are slowly being reclaimed by nature, and iconic structures which now only exist in our memory. She will reference industrial structures in the North West, both present and past, as well as lost structures from collieries local to Stockport.
Reception: May 26, 2018 from 2 - 4 pm
