Laura Menzies and Jim Carter present a joint exhibition of painting and sculpture concerned with omens and their relationship with transformative processes.
Laura Menzies’ work operates as a personal register of marks formed from constructs of memory, emotion and indirect references to place. Her paintings suggest a world that we all encounter visually or sensationally, and are imbued with a strong sense of time, depth and ambiguity.
Jim Carter is a sculptor working in wood and natural materials to explore relationships between human, animal and landscape. Following completion of an MA in Art and Environment in 2013, his work has been linked to myth, alchemy and natural cycles of disintegration and renewal.
