"As a previous curator for the Babylon Gallery, I'm thrilled to present these works by Harland Viney, an artist born in Australia, developed in Bristol and grounded in wild west Dorset for over 14 years. Harland is prolific and relentless in developing a practice that explores and binds our shared sensitivities to our shared environment. This exhibition focuses on Harland's landscapes and how flora and fauna merge into our sense of ourselves and others.
According to Wikipedia, the clay, flat land of Ely, at its highest, measures 26 metres while west Dorset's mixed geology peaks at 279 metres. My interest as a curator is focused on how these works sit, far away from their western, geographic origins and how they are perceived in our eastern communities."
