Entwined/suainte project by Caroline Dear | featuring 100 ropes from 50 (local) plants
"Displayed on the gallery wall, the seasonal progression of this work reads like a large scale three dimensional drawing, with variations of texture, hue and line allowing the unique qualities of each plant to be contemplated. The range and subtlety of colour, affected by natural processes of growth and decay and the progression of light across the Northern landscape, positions the work in terms of geography, while the tagging of each piece classified scientifically presents vital elements within a unique ecosystem." – Northings.com
