15 February to 6 March in the Garden Room Gallery

Inscriptions in a Landscape

work by Martin Broadbent and Richard Rochester

Reception: Friday February 17 17.00 to 19.00

About his work, Martin says:

“This project came about as a result of the Open Space events that were held at Dartington last year. It seeks to add knowledge to the Dartington story by researching the historical record and recording some of the evidence for those who are buried in the church yard. Also, where better for me as an artist interested in ‘the materiality of stone’, to investigate a site where pieces of stone embody individuals and their relationship to place,  community, family, culture, and their position in the landscape.”

Richard talks about this and more generally about his work:

“In a country that often feels incredibly over-crowded, I never cease to be amazed at how easy it is to get away from it all. We are blessed with countless beaches, woods, moors and other wild places where we can find our own space, feel an exhilarating sense of adventure and marvel at the raw natural beauty around us. My work is an attempt to capture the essence of this.”
