The discussion was staged in the main gallery, surrounded by the work that has been on show for the past four or so months. Esther Dudley opened with a brief explanation underpinning the concept of the theme, the choice of venue, the work selected and the manner of presentation. The artists were invited to describe how they initially approached the stimulus and how their work evolved over time.
Much of the archive material housed in the Royal Cornwall Museum reflects the rich geological and industrial heritage to be found in Cornwall, both the ancient history and the more recent mining past. As such it was considered to be the most appropriate place to present work exploring this theme and to do so through such diverse mediums of painting, pottery, ceramics and photography.
Terrain is due to close on the 27th February 2015.
