RIGHT PLACE, RIGHT TIME FOR LANDSCAPE ARTIST

 

A landscape exhibition based on the theme ‘Moments in Time’ is now on display at the EICH Gallery in George Street, Hull.

 

In his latest exhibition Brighton-based artist John Kelly uses an eclectic mix of works – photographs, paintings, objects and writings – to explore our relationship with the land and our awareness of time.

 

“Our relationship with land relies on a number of ‘touchpoints’ – visual, sensory, literary and above all the awareness of time,” says John.

 

“The ‘deep time’ of a landscape envelopes the vastness of geological history. We occasionally come into contact with the great chasm of time and realise, fleetingly, what is of true significance before us.”

 

The exhibition includes one special piece of work entitled ‘Sunk Island’ which was created to ensure that the display reflects a relationship with place and time which is special to the East Yorkshire area.

 

“The meridian line passes through Sunk Island – a coincidence of time and place that literally draws us into the marking of the Millennium and gives new precision to the expression ‘being in the right place at the right time’,” said Kathie Jenkins, curator of the EICH Gallery.

 

‘Moments in Time’ will be on display at the EICH (European Illustration Collection Hull) Gallery until 18th October 2000. The gallery is normally open to the public on weekdays from 10am until 4pm, and admission is free.
