Book your place for this Fine Art Talk with inaugural 'Gardens Artist in Residence' Stuart Whipps on Wednesday 4 March.
During this talk, Stuart will discuss his residency and the development of an ambitious new body of work that draws on specialist expertise including geology and horticulture. The work is an exploration of landscape as a historical accumulation of time and the stories that can be told from the perspective of stones, plants and the people who work with them.
Stuart Whipps has exhibited his work across the UK and internationally and is the recipient of a number of awards. He works predominantly with photography and video alongside reconfigured existing or remade materials. Selected solo exhibitions include: ‘The Kipper and The Corpse’, Ikon, Birmingham, 2019. ‘Isle of Slingers’, Spike Island 2016. ‘Photo Colour Services’, Ithuba Gallery, Johannesburg, South Africa. ‘Birth Springs, Death Falls’, Flat Time House, London 2013. ‘Why Contribute to The Spread of Ugliness?’, Ikon Gallery, Birmingham 2011.
