Amy Winstanley - 'Nothing But Being Itself'
 
Since graduating she has exhibited widely and her recent work has centred on exploring man’s relationship to nature, in particular our significance and insignificance to it. Amy says: ‘I am interested in the juxtaposition between our desire to reconnect with nature, our “want of the wild” and our “un-connection” to it.’
 
This is Amy’s first solo show at Gracefield and a chance to see her new paintings
