Lost And Found: Exhibition by Laurie Harpum

April 1, 2017 @ 11:00 am - April 29, 2017 @ 4:00 pm

Laurie Harpum is an artist who lives and works on the Isle of Sheppey. She draws inspiration from her environment and the objects she finds within it.

She gathers objects that have been thrown up by the sea, tumbled out of the cliffs, cast out or lost by their previous owners.

She uses these found objects, both natural and manmade and more recently found bird remains, in her work. Drawing inspiration from the rich textures and patinas that build up on metals, the wear and erosion that affects wood, the way an object is marked and worn by it’s journey through time.  The works exhibited here combine this frailty and natural erosion with new elements that she constructs using; ceramic, wire, wood and concrete to create an evocative narrative that speaks timelessly of humanity, landscape and the imagination.

To find out more about Laurie and her work visit her website, or follow her on Twitter, or Instagram.

Lost And Found: Exhibition by Laurie Harpum runs from Saturday 1st April until Saturday 29th April.
Exhibition open Tuesday-Friday: 11am-4pm. Saturdays: 10am-3pm. Sunday-Monday: Closed.
