Beyond the Mountain examines our connections with the landscape beyond the sublime and the romantic through the work of three artists often working in untraditional materials. Dagmara Genda uses screen-printed mac-tac which is installed in configurations that reveal a secondary image related to the landscape. Sarah Alford uses hot glue to create highly patterned structures that evoke comparisons with lace or spider webs as she explores the boundaries established between ourselves and the wilderness. Jennifer Bowes, using labour intensive techniques like stitching, folding and knotting, for instance, uses paper and fibre to create rich textures and surfaces. Sometimes referencing patterns derived from farming, tents and even birds' nests Bowes' work explores the marks we place within our landscapes. Together this exhibition provides a highly inventive and fresh approach towards a reconsideration of the world we inhabit.
