About the event

Clouds of Wondermesh® netting studded with copper, china and string. Plaster tablets embedded with electrical and plumbing residues. Surprising materials cascading from wedding cake pillars. Artist Alison Dunhill upcycles domestic and industrial ephemera and detritus of the city into objects of beauty.

For her latest exhibition, UPSCAPE, Dunhill has created fine-textured collages and startling three-dimensional constructions using found materials, everyday objects, things that most of us overlook or throw away.

“As a child I was fascinated by the shapes, colours and textures of things that other people regarded as rubbish”, says Dunhill. “I remember as a five-year-old coercing my friends to collect objects they’d find in the street and we’d arrange them into patterns.”

Dunhill trained under Sir Terry Frost and Rita Donagh, and her work has been frequently exhibited. In recent years she has been exploring materials-led abstract forms, including wall-hung, free-standing and hanging works.
