Ebb and Flow

Ebb and Flow

Ebb and Flow brings together recent work by three Cambridgeshire-based artists; Ninette Rubinstein, Rikki Morgan-Tamosunas and Veronica Thornton. The three artists will present works inspired by, and responding to, the dynamic interplay between water and land, reflecting on a series of related preoccupations with time and memory, and the fragility and potential of our environment.

Each artist approaches these common themes in a very different visual and conceptual way and we believe that the combination of connections and contrasts will create an interesting creative tension and dialogue between the artworks the exhibition will bring together.

Ninette Rubinstein’s paintings on canvas and paper are mixed media works, using acrylic paint and collage. They are abstract or semi abstract, evoking the themes of water, land, and spaces both real and imagined. The many layers and textures evoke the ebb and flow of nature, time and memory.

Rikki Morgan-Tamosunas’s semi-abstract work evokes the ever-shifting relationship between land and water that defines our Fenlands and permeates their enigmatic atmosphere. Using mixed media, including found and hand-painted collage, the paintings explore the traces of time, change and fragility in these threatened landscapes, and the potent secrets locked away in their peat-darkened depths.

Veronica Thornton’s mixed media work uses textiles and found objects to explore the destructive effects of flooding and erosion, shifting coastlines and changing maps. Focusing on East Anglia it evokes the power of water in lives past and present.
