Studio Pavilion at House for an Art Lover is pleased to present a solo exhibition of new work by artist Lesley Punton. “Below, the rocks plunged into darkness” continues her exploration into mountain landscape and a consideration of how we experience, encounter and inhabit wild spaces.
Working with drawing, painting, text, film and photography in forms that seek to create parallels between the experiences of landscape and those of recording and representation, Punton’s work is informed by a longstanding interest in the history of mountain and polar exploration and through the artefacts, images and literature of exploration, memoir and scientific document. Her work is primarily focused upon how we experience and interact with wild landscape and how the prolonged gaze and an active, physical engagement with place might alter and deepen our relationship with the land.
