For #Five2Watch this week we've selected five artists whose work resonates with the season of Autumn: Sam Lee, Jeremy Webb, Caitlin Heffernan, Matt Rowe and Emma Gladwin.
Harvest Super Moon, 2019
Woodcut series of unique versions.
Dog walks Autumn colours, 2020
A short series of iPhone images of Autumn colours taken last year, mostly in gaps between lockdowns 1 & 2.
Harvest Wain Procession, 2015
I was commissioned by Metal arts in Peterborough http://www.metalculture.com/projects/harvest-festival/, to respond to the Harvest festival. My piece was processioned through the town centre as part of a folkloric ritual, celebrating women as part of the Harvest festival.
My inspiration came from Peterborough cathedral ceiling, which featured medieval diamond shaped portraits. I created a series of processional cloths with the diamond motif, and capes adorned with symbolic fruits, vegetables and female pagan imagery, to highlight and celebrate women.
Dark Harvest, 2014
Working on behalf of Strange Cargo for the Cheriton Lights Festival Matt Rowe has developed a series of installations, projections and sculptural assemblages that seek to reignite something of Cheriton’s rural past. Appearing in shop windows and on house fronts, the works infiltrate the town, transforming the locality with imagery from traditional folk rituals and celebrations. Collaborating with local residents Rowe has developed over fifty window displays. Central to each display is a contemporary corn dolly or corn mother.
