ROGER HARDY'S figurative constructions and sculpture are made using found elements from local boat yards and estuary worn wood from the river Alde, Suffolk, could have been carved long ago. Roger uses the natural processes in the degradation of his materials to simplify the essence of the human form. He enjoys the act of revelation as they are abraded by the elements that lend a timeless quality to his sculptures. Cleansed of their original purpose his figures take on a totemic resonance that help us define the human condition.
We are looking forward to 2020 and a relaunch of our pop-up venture with a new name to reflect our vision for the years ahead. CONTEMPORARY AND COUNTRY will display work by contemporary artists and makers who don’t conform to historic assumptions about creativity being a largely metropolitan activity. Through their chosen subject matter they raise questions about what it takes to shift ideas of the rural idyll away from the romantic and remote, toward a variety of more engaging concerns shared by creative practitioners working in geographically isolated communities today.

The designers we showcase include wood turner STEVE GORE ROWE. Our makers create beautiful pieces from decorative furniture, soft furnishings and objects for the home. All use a diverse range of materials, often natural, associated with the eastern region. Including seashells, to hand-turned wood and ceramics, to wool and glass.

All employ traditional painting techniques in figurative and abstract styles, including oil, watercolour and acrylic paints, as well as print and photography.
