The definition of Palimpsest is one of previous text or texts having been imperfectly erased and remaining, therefore still partly visible. The works in this exhibition are a culmination of three artists Tracy Griffin, Jayne Simpson and Magda Stawarska-Beavan who have taken the idea that life experiences become erased or forgotten through time but always partly remain shaping and defining ours lives and experiences of the present and future. The common thread through their work is one of motherhood and womanhood – a reflection and visual comment of the ordinary everyday but extraordinary encounters these relationships bring. Griffin, Simpson and Stawarska-Beavan explore the delicate balance of their relationships and the challenge of creating space and time to pursue their work as artists.
Show runs until Saturday 30th May
