20th January – 16th April
This exhibition of paintings and research material focuses primarily on the Freshwater landscape and Dimbola as a catalyst and meeting place for an exploration into the work of D. H. Lawrence’s novel ‘The Trespasser’, Helen Corke’s, ‘In our Infancy’ and Virginia Woolf’s ‘To the Lighthouse’ and ‘The Waves’. Judy’s work is engaged with the poetic dialogues between writers and painters and the elemental environments that form the nature and development of their work.
‘Perhaps it was the middle of January in the present year that I first looked up and saw the mark on the wall. In order to fix a date it is necessary to remember what one saw’……. Virginia Woolf, 1917
Judy’s exhibition will be shown alongside material from the Dimbola archive including the Anne Olivier Bell Gift of the photographs of the young sisters Vanessa and Virginia Stephens [later Bell and Woolf] – and original photographs taken by Patti Smith at Charleston and Monks House.
The research and development of this exhibition was supported by the Oppenhiem John Downes Trust.
The preview for this exhibition will be on Thursday the 19th Jan 6-8pm. This is a free event and all are welcome.
