Alongside Art in the Dark, the annual event held at Western Park, Black Asterisk is presenting a light show – one that encompasses work that both emits and reflects. Work will be displayed by Carolyn Williams, Stuart Broughton, Cathy Carter, Tony Lane, Emma Bass and our own ex-studio artist Carolyn Milbank,
The sculpture of Carolyn Milbank is also transformed through the use of light. Cast resin and plaster houses explore ideas of memory and place. Within a new dwelling we carry the experience of a former living space in our minds, a small wax form or leaf encased in the resin are symbols of the memory. The oral history relayed through families over time overlays the acceptance of the dwelling, identifying the place of home.
Our Annual Open Studio Day is coming up on Saturday December 7th so keep an eye out for further details to come.
