NSA Member Susan Kinley is exhibiting work in the exhibition Time-Lapse at the Royal Cornwall Museum in Truro until 1st August. This is the first exhibition by the Design Nation South West group, with work including ceramic installations, tapestry, metal and jewellery. Opening hours are 10am – 4pm, closed Sunday & Monday. There is a £5 admission charge for the museum, but there is also a drawing show on at the moment.
In her work for Time-Lapse, Susan is showing a series of shaped glass wall panels made before and during the pandemic. They include fragmented imagery from photographs taken at intervals from a Bronze Age site at Tregeseal, West Cornwall, over many months. This wild landscape is constantly changing and also timeless, where stones and boundaries have survived for millennia. The kilnfired glass pieces encapsulate both a suspension of time and a continuum; before, during and beyond an unprecedented period of change and turbulence.
