Feline fans will enjoy the latest exhibition at Banks Mill in Derby where artist Gerry Henegan Barr showcases her unique style of mixed media 3D sculptural tableau.
Through found images and ephemera, Gerry uses humour, phantasmagoria and animal hybrids to explore how we relate to and affect the world around us, with wall pieces, featuring cats in various forms.
The work explores the way animals are having to adapt and evolve; sharing their DNA, their wings, fins, and tails to swim, fly and soar to survive the depths and heights of humanity’s polluted legacy.
In one piece a single swimmer with goggles on, concentrating on her daily exercise quota shows, as humans, our single minded nature – focusing on our own lives rather than the wider impact of our actions.
The exhibition runs until February 24. It is open 10am-3pm weekdays and to view the exhibition it is advisable to ring 01332 594170 to book.
You can meet the artist on Feburary 4 from, 4-7pm and February 15 from 10am-1pm.
There is a private view with refreshments, on February 12 from 4-7pm.
