Adam & Eve Project Preview

15 Jun, 2017 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Elizabeth Forrest Adam and Eve full imageA group of 13 leading artists based in and around Derbyshire and Staffordshire, have produced work for The Adam & Eve Project. The exhibition will run from 15th June to 1st July to coincide with the Ashbourne Festival.

The artists involved are:

Duncan Pass                           Michael Cook                        Roger Sutton
Sarah Sharp                           Sue Prince                              Anna Thomas
Simon Manby                         Lee Mackay                           Elizabeth Forrest
R C Clarke                              Rebecca Mercer                    Janet Turville
John Rattigan

Their brief was to make a personal response to the time honoured narrative of Adam & Eve and in particular to reimagine some key aspect from its well established iconography; whether this is the Garden of Eden/Paradise setting, or the symbolism associated with the Serpent or The Tree of Knowledge.

Equally, because of the historical pedigree that surrounds this theme – encapsulating as it does everything from medieval stained glass and illuminated scripts, through Masaccio and Rembrandt to Chagall and Klimt – some participating artists have used aspects of art history as a starting point.
