Cass Art Space, 18 School Lane, Liverpool, L1 3BT

GROUND exhibition at Cass Art Space features new work on paper by John Elcock, Julie Lawrence, Paul Mellor and Sarah Jane Richards.

Working quite independently Elcock, Lawrence and Richards have all made work during lockdown referencing the liminal qualities of the Dee Estuary. Recent work by Mellor references similar aspects of landscape, but based on a geographically opposite coastline, using memories of living in the North Yorkshire Moors.

Patterns of nature and weather based on walking in the field are explored within the exclusive use of paper-based media. GROUND explores what it is to experience the land, and to use this as medium for the work itself.

John will be showing recent work inspired by wading bird observation at Hilbre Island, the Dee and Mersey estuaries. He is delighted to be back exhibiting again following recent changes to the COVID regulations.

GROUND is part of Independents Biennial Associates Programme. The artists’ work is produced independently, but included as a unique voice alongside the festival.
