What is art if not a gift? Few artists are economically sustained by their practice yet are compelled to continually make and offer their artworks to all willing and less willing individuals. Sue Hunt and Susan Adams explore offering through a collaborative piece involving prints, silverpoint drawings and sculpture, with an opportunity to pass on the gift by giving an offering to Mind Cymru.
By choosing to show the work in a church, Hunt and Adams have drawn a parallel between the sacred space of the gift (calling to mind Lewis Hyde’s remarkable book The Gift : how the creative spirit transforms the world) and contemplation of the sublime. Hunt’s prints evoke the circular form of the communion wafer while Adams’ sculpture echoes medieval ecclesiastical sculpture.
This explorative piece marks there first collaboration , during which seeds will be sown for future development.
