A Walk Around Cissbury

This exhibition brings together five artists with the common practice of working in the local Downland landscape. Through conversations and chance meetings they discovered that they had all been working, walking and visiting similar areas on the South Downs over the past few years. They have all been drawn to Cissbury Ring for a variety of reasons – researching its historical significance, looking for the human shaping of the land that has been farmed for centuries, walking, collecting and thinking. Their conversations prompted them to visit Cissbury Ring together and to begin sharing their different interests and interpretations of the site and to develop the work in the exhibition. These exchanges have been enriching and through this collective exhibition each of the contributing artists have developed their work in surprising ways. The Artists are: Emily Jolley, Jane Fox, Jenny Staff, Tania Rutland & Anna Twinam-Cauchi.
