The Brewery Arts Centre  2016

.......a collection of recent drawings, paintings, bookworks, text pieces and animations.


The selected pieces for this solo exhibition reflect an intuitive connection with memory and sense

of place. Using references from the natural world, Rachel Gibson explores the idea of an uncertain stability and the progression through time from one state of being to another.
