Latitudes – Sheila Jordan

This photograph shows some work in progress by Sheila Jordan for the Latitudes exhibition at Airfield.  Lots of work still to be done before the opening on 19th May

Sheila’s work is informed by landscape she is interested in how we use  that landscape and  leave our mark on it.  Standing in the rural oasis of Airfield, surrounded by the imposing architecture of  21st century  living, she is struck by the relationship  between the old and the new, the materials of modern living coexisting  with our agricultural heritage.  For this exhibition Sheila is constructing a large scale sculpture using  traditional fence building materials such  as birch, hazel and willow, the shape of this structure will reflect the strong architecture that so closely surrounds Airfield..  The sculpture will incorporate  stitched felt panels  which feature  drawings  and maps from  Airfields rich history.
