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.
