For this site-specific exhibition entitled ‘Matter’, Tessa Grundon has created a multi-faceted body of work using an array of materials and artifacts relating to specific geographic areas.
Her work is drawn from what she finds – local maps, wax from nearby beehives, an array of pigments from the muds, earths, plants and charcoal; debris found along the strandlines of shores and river banks both rural and urban.
With these materials she creates work that embodies a sense of place for her, totems of landscapes she knows and loves. Her work references a range of inspirations and influences including the topography and history of a place and its ever-changing environment, from the shifting tides to the effect of man on the landscape to man himself and the shared visual language of natural forms.
