Adam & Eve Project Preview
15 Jun, 2017 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm
A 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
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.
