I am a sculptor/maker working mainly with wood to commission in the area of public art, creating both functional and non functional pieces. Using the highly tactile and organic material of timber, my approach is to create artworks which are inviting, engaging and inclusive. There are references to natural forms and processes and the works hold layers of meaning. Ideas around transformation, regeneration and the cycles of nature are explored. Through the use of more abstract forms, viewers are invited to make their own associations and interpretations of my work.

Presenting paintings by Peter Ross and sculptures by Dylan Bowen and Debbie Page, this exhibition features work which is reminiscent of themes of reflection, surface and form, with each artist conveying their own definition of those motifs in thought-provoking works which are simultaneously sentimental, expressionistic and delicate.
Reflection: Peter Ross is a Welsh artist living in Oxfordshire. Based on family and archive portraits, his paintings are reminiscent of the reflections of his childhood in South Wales during the 1950s and 60s.
