13 June – 25 July 2009.

Preview Night Friday 12 June, 5 – 8pm, All Welcome

In his first suite of screenprints, produced by Peacock Visual Arts, local artist David Blyth returns to the subject of lambing and domesticity in a playful exploration of colour, pattern, image and surface. Evocative of the brash home furnishings and kitsch décor of his late grandmother’s home, the colourful series shows the maternal bond between ewe and lamb creating a patterned backdrop of banal memory and tender kinship; the work’s plastic aesthetic making light of the real complexities facing modern day animal husbandry.
