Exhibition Press-Release


The Mundane Shell is a vast Concave Earth…enlarg’d into Dimension…deform’d into indefinite Space..It is a cavernous Earth of labyrinthine intricacy and finishes where the lark mounts.
William Blake, Milton, 1804

Blake’s poem is the starting point for this exhibition; which, by way of handmade and machine-produced art objects seeks to explore both private subjective languages and external political structures.

Sharon Thomas and Laurence Figgis’ visual story-telling unpicks a metaphorical world tenaciously inter-woven with the fabulous yarns of art history, popular culture and literary tradition.
