Alice Fox's Findings at The Ropewalk

Alice Fox - Altered Paper

If you can get to The Ropewalk in Barton upon Humber before the end of the weekend (3 September 2017) you can see Alice Fox's Findings exhibition.  I am drawn to Alice's work.  I love the curiousness of it, the imprints, the combination of the found and the added, the stitching, the staining, the texture.  Enough!  Here's a taster...

Alice Fox - Altered Paper

"Findings" references both the action of finding something and the information obtained as the result of an investigation.  Alice collects things on her journeys and through her interactions with those things discovers more about them.  Through gathering, weaving, stitch, and staining her offerings take shape.

Do go and visit if you can.  Alice's work is always interesting. And at the Ropewalk, there are also three other galleries, the Ropewalk Museum which tells you all about rope making on the site, car parking and a cafe and it's close to the Humber Bridge.  If you want to spend some time outdoors the Waters' Edge Visitors Centre and Country Park and the Humber Bridge Country Park are close by too.  Go visit!
