Wirksworth Gallery hosts Rosalind Pounder

Derby artist Rosalind Pounder will transform the whole gallery space at North End in Wirksworth with her exquisite, delicate ‘nest’ forms created from natural and man-made materials.

Her nest-like vessels are created using foraged  and gathered materials such as dead foliage and discarded BT wires.

The results are stunning and involve many hours of intricate work and skilled manipulation of the materials.

Alongside these, Rosalind will exhibit her beautiful handmade books which she dyes using natural colours from plants and berries in the exhibition entitled Gatherings.

“My work grows from an engagement with the natural world around me and is an intimate response to the ineffable via the minutiae of things cast aside.

Books, nests, vessels and gatherings, ritualistic in their construction become sanctuaries – humble epiphanies,” says Rosalind.

The exhibition at North End Gallery in, North End, Wirksworth will run from March 17-May 12.
