Mary Pritchard’s solo show features huge hand-coloured images of ancient heritage trees which all have stories and legends attached to them. These tree portraits aim to capture the personality of these ‘green monuments’ and their long interaction with humanity. Who knows what momentous dramas these craggy faces have witnessed throughout their lives?
Alongside these tree portraits will be atmospheric images taken with a hand-made pinhole camera of journeys through England and further afield. ‘Counting Elephants’ refers to the method Mary uses to calculate the exposure times required with the pinhole camera, and is also the title of a series of tiny hand-made books of these journeys. Mary also works as a ceramicist and will show her ‘organic’ porcelain paperclay sculptures and vessels. www.marypritchard.net
