Shore, Sea, Sky

the North Wales coast project

This exciting collaborative exhibition has three artists exploring the spaces where the shore, sea and sky meet, responding both to the land and seascape of the North Wales coast and to each other’s work.

‘My work is fundamentally about places I know, the emotional connection I have with them and the physical effect that society has had upon them, especially in mining and agriculture. I look for the physical scars our actions have, such as paths, fields and fences.’

Jon Clayton

Jon’s art is about places. They can be recognisable, detailed representational images but also, looser, abstract impressions, responses informed by connections present and in memory. Many of his paintings depict places of personal significance where he has spent time, often a lot of time.

Helen Smith

Created from kiln-formed glass, Helen’s tactile glass curves are strongly influenced by place. However, rather than depicting the landscape directly her focus is always on the interpretation of found textures within the landscape in combination with a sense of the atmosphere of a place.
