Nineteen Artist Group Show - Tree and Leaf
This group exhibition takes its title from a little-known short book by J.R.R. Tolkien, first published in 1964. The book contains two works, an essay called “On Fairy-Stories'' and an allegorical short story called “Leaf by Niggle”.
Hannah Barry are using Tolkien’s book as a point of departure to examine how the subject of landscape, and ideas about landscape, present themselves in contemporary painting and sculpture. In particular, the ways in which landscape can be used as an instrument of myth- making, creativity and storytelling.
