Adam Grose, Mark Adkins and John Stuart are exhibiting a range of new works at the Somerset Cricket Ground in Taunton during the GoCreate Taunton Live Festival during the month of July. The work explores their response to the game of cricket through Photography, Poetry and Printmaking (Etching)
Adam Grose’s prints use handmade printing ink made from willow wood used to make the cricket bats, turning the willow into ash and producing an ink pressed onto Fabriano paper. The ink creates a soft tone and explores minimalist sensibilities responding to the shape of the bats, their aerodynamic forms carved on the back of the cricket bats, as well as various items in the museum relating to threading, The Straggler’s Team and the forms relating to the game of cricket.
Mark Adkins photography explores the shapes and forms created through capturing movement of the cricket players, forming frequencies of colour as abstract forms.
John Stuart has created a collection of poetry in bookform exploring the game of cricket and the various associations with the game and its history.
All the work is exhibited at The Straggler’s Cafe and in the reception area to the right of the cafe.
Opening Hours: 10:00 – 16:00 Monday to Saturday / 08.30 – 14:30 Sunday (Non-match days)
