The Song of the Willow

Lizzie Farey

31 Mar 2022 - 01 May 2022

The artist and sculptor Lizzie Farey has created a new series of wall pieces and 3D sculptural work from her studio in Dumfries and Galloway. This work is inspired by the birdlife, flora and fauna native to her local landscape. A number of these species are in decline or under threat and this exhibition seeks to immerse you in their landscape; from her willow field to the marshlands and moorlands and further rolling landscape outside her studio.

Working with willow has kept me engaged for over thirty years, as much for its elegance as for the challenge of working with this resilient and flexible wood. I grow my own material - Flanders Red, Brittany Blue, Oxford Violet and Dicky Meadows, the common names read like a poem. - Lizzie Farey
