October is my favourite month — I love that change to crisp evening air and the leaves turning brilliant yellows and reds. In that spirit, we’re especially pleased that the work by our next guest artist, Saffron Toms, is all about cyclicity.
Experimenting with both camera-less and camera-based techniques, Saffron creates images of the natural world that engage and mystify. Darkroom processes are paramount to her practice, and reflect her deep connection with universal themes of life, growth, and decay. Saffron just graduated from Hereford College of Arts this year, and we’re thrilled that she’s agreed to exhibit with us.
‘Circles of Life’, as we’ve titled the exhibition, will bring together work from four of Saffron’s photographic series for the first time: Hollow Earth, The Woodland in Motion, The Fragility of Being and Union.
‘Circles of Life’ will be at Leg of Mutton from 16 October through 8 November. As usual, we’ll be open to the public for the first weekend of the exhibition: 16–18 October, 11 AM to 5 PM. Join us for the reception if you can, on Friday 16 October from 6 to 8 PM.
