The Blue Hour, 2019 by Caro Williams
Brass and steel sound notes created from dawn chorus recordings taken in during the blue hour, brass bells, silk thread, chain, metal sound boxes playing birdsong, blue light
Dawn chorus recordings fill the space both aurally and visually. A single bell rings in the silence between one bird chorus and the next. The Blue Hour draws from the French expression L’heure bleue alluding to the strange and elusive moments between night and day when the natural world is silent. It is after these moments of silence when light covers the darkness and the blue appears that the dawn chorus begins.
Now showing at Contemporary Art and Ritual, Crypt Gallery, London NW1 2BA
16-21 May 2019, Opens daily 10am – 6pm
Spiritual Gardening, 2019 by Angela Chalmers
Cyanotype on Silk & Paper
‘Spiritual Gardening’ is part of a series of work connected to my art residency at St Martin-on-the-Hill. At the heart of this work is a study of nature and how through seeking experiences with
the natural world, such as gardening we immerse ourselves in a deep-rooted cultural or spiritual place of connection.
