GroundWork Gallery

GroundWork during a previous major exhibition

Yesterday I was privileged to visit GroundWork, in Kings Lynn a wonderful gallery space by the Kings Lynn historic waterfront that focuses on environmental art. The current exhibition is ‘Extraction: Loss and Restoration’ – looking at the effect of large-scale mining and quarrying on the landscape.

Featured here from the exhibition work by Onya McCausland showing a series of paintings making use of pigments created from mineral residues generated from the processes of mine water treatment. These wonderful ochre shades have been used to create subtle and evocative abstract pieces. And they matched my raincoat rather well!

The large mycelium painting one the wall of the gallery is by Chris Drury: ‘Dust to Dust’ 2021. Mural painted in dust and ashes of a mushroom spore print on the wall. Painted in situ for GroundWork gallery by the artist using silt residue rom a local quarry, Middleton Aggregates.

Current exhibition runs until 30th September.

Urthona issue 36 due out late autumn 2022 will contain a feature on the gallery and some of its artists including renowned landscape artist Chris Drury, as well as many other features on landscape painters and sacred landscapes around the world.
