Francesca Mollett, Wild Shade, at Informality, Henley (29 Apr-29 May 2021)

Francesca Mollett's (Unit 8, TB-122) solo exhibition Wild Shade, opens at Informality Gallery on 29 April.

Wild Shade brings together an exhibition of new work which responds to Earth’s sources of water and the artist’s desire to record and share the personal transformation that humans experience through circumstances choreographed by light and weather.

This series of paintings originate from time spent by a network of wells in Penwith, Cornwall, England. The land of Penwith is both sacred and geologically exploited, large quantities of copper and tin were once mined, and the co-existence of underground water with metal deposits made wells and springs ‘holy’ and ‘healing’.
