Exhibition: Fragile Edges

Exhibition: Fragile Edges


After a successful summer of exhibitions, including vibrant wildlife paintings, textiles and traditional crafts, painter Fay Collins and ceramicists Miles-Moore are joining forces for a new show at Florence Arts Centre in Egremont: “Fragile Edges”.
Collins, an artist based in north Lancashire is inspired by the raw experience of being in mountain and coastal environments using nature as a starting point for creative exploration. Strong colour, texture, form and atmosphere are common themes in Fay’s painting and she has recently focussed on Ennerdale Water and the fascinating, so-called ‘wilding’ of the valley. In stark contrast to other visitor-orientated lakes of the National Park, Ennerdale’s identity as a wild valley is most fitting for this exhibition, which focuses on blurred boundaries and observations of nature reasserting itself. Her fascination with geological qualities and the impact that climate change has imposed on our fragile planet informs much of her work.

Joining Fay for this collaborative exhibition are Martin and Siobhan Miles-Moore, ceramicists based in South Cumbria. Using waste from current and historical industrial sites to create glazes and finishes for their ceramic sculptural forms they have previously spent time at Florence during the C-Art festival where they presented a superb and popular raku-firing demonstration. This, however, will be their first time exhibiting work at the venue.
