Jen Altman   Human Traces    22nd March 7pm

Jen Altman’s art emerges from her engagement with the human condition as a biologist and therapist. She explores themes of life, death and decay, mostly producing semi-abstract clay forms based on the human body but also makes drawings of her own body. She has recently used an artist’s residency to extend this into the outdoors, creating impermanentimages that were captured only in photographs, and will discuss how this work affected her studio practice.


A Brief History of Abstraction     Friday   May 17th 7pm

Dominic Vince gives a whirlwind tour through the development of abstract art; its ideas, themes,

theories and characters
