Located on the outskirts of Banchory in Aberdeenshire, Woodend Barn is an exceptional venture that looks properly at what art can be within a community. I was delighted to be invited to be an artist in residence there in 2014.
This major exhibition of previously unseen work is a powerful, and visually beautiful, illustration of the ways in which artist John Newling explores the relationships between the natural world and systems of value within society.
Ecologies of Value was an exhibition of work that included growing Moringa Oleifera trees hydroponically in galleries in Nottingham and Penzance during 2013. These bracelets have evolved from that work.
