Double vision at the Mill as artists display street art and cast glass

Three local artists, all members of ‘Plain Arts Salisbury’, will present an eclectic body of artwork at Fisherton Mill, Salisbury, from February 11 until March 11.

Double Vision will explore the relationship between the artist (the inspirations and viewpoints that support their individual work), and the viewer and what they see, feel and take away from the interaction, a response that is always highly personal and sometimes quite unexpected. Such is the beauty and joy of art.
David Walker’s photography focuses on the extraordinary development of street art and how it grows organically within existing environments.
His extensive globe-trotting has given him the opportunity to reflect sensitively on the social infrastructure of many cultures.
He can often be found walking around the streets of London or New York and stumbling on some of the most amazing images you could imagine.
Scarlet Leatham has always been drawn to colour, light and form, especially in relation to nature and architecture, the latter of which often draws on the natural world for inspiration.
Patterns in nature and seeing buildings or the landscape from unusual angles are themes that feature in her work.
She often uses a macro lens to highlight a particular aspect of what she sees in order to challenge the viewer to look more closely at something that might otherwise be passed by without a second thought.
Geraldine McLoughlin works with kiln-formed and cast glass, which provides an unmatched opportunity for innovation.

Pushing the boundaries through temperature control and experimentation, Geraldine enjoys the interplay between intellectual stimulation and the tactile manipulation of the material. Her work is influenced by water in all its forms, by conservation and by earth patterns. Her glass works can be placed indoors or out.
Double Vision can be viewed at Fisherton Mill in the Main Gallery on the first floor during normal opening hours: Monday to Friday, 10am to 5pm and Saturday from 9.30am to 5.30pm.
Each artist will spend time at the gallery should anyone wish to find out more about their work – Scarlet will be at the gallery on Saturday, 18th February, Geraldine on
Saturday, 25th February and David on Saturday, 4th March from 11am to 4pm.
Admission is free.
