Counterpart Exhibition, Black Barn, Cockley Cley nr Swaffham
The exhibition took place on 23rd and 24th September 2017 and was a major retrospective exhibition by artist/educator practitioner Dr Richard Gant who is based in North Wales but his expanding portfolio of work derives from his birthplace, fenscapes and cliffscapes of Norfolk.
Using materials partly sourced from Frimstone quarries Richard presented recent work with a focus on the Hunstanton cliff scapes of North Norfolk, and the concept of a 'ploughed field', with the carrstone and stone aggregate being donated by Frimstone.
Here you can see photographs of the aggregate piece entitled 'ploughed field ritual'. The stone was funnelled into 250 grm, 3" layflat tubing and woven into a pattern over an area of 4m x 3m.
'By reminding us of our place in the world and our relationship to the environment around us, Richard Gant is using art to make us see and think about the world around us in a different - and provocative - way.' [KL Magazine - October 2017 Edition - page 112]
