Nora Fok poster mini
This exhibition represents a selection of Nora Fok’s work from the past six years and was commissioned by the Harley Gallery. Her work examines the interaction between art and science. Mathematics and the three dimensional structures underlying life’s natural forms are the starting points for these new series. The resulting pieces occupy territory between bodywear and sculpture. There will be three themes: Exploring Flax which led her to develop a new thread combining nylon and flax; Magic of Nature this section shows the latest pieces resulting from Nora’s continuing fascination with natural forms and the ability of nylon threads; and New Forms, New Technologies where she uses 3D printing to create sculptural forms strongly influenced by the mathematical/structural philosophy of Buckminster Fuller.

On now in the small gallery

Monday 22 to Saturday 27 May: ‘Guido’s Garden’ Frayed Edges

Brought to us by long standing SBSA member Jennie Louden, Frayed Edges group are based in Edinburgh and the central belt of Scotland. Lindores Abbey in Newburgh, Fife, and its first abbot, Guido, inspired this work; the ruins visible today hold memories of the monks who founded it, times of greatness and subsequent decay. Frayed Edges members explore Guido’s Garden using a variety of media.
