Musings on art and life.
The Civic, Barnsley has an interesting space they call “the Panorama”. It sits at the top of the staircase that leads to the theatre and has an abundant amount of lovely, natural light, even on grey rainy days, such as today.
It was in this space that I got to have a good look at the work of local photographer Adrian Ashworth.
The collection of seventeen photographs are all printed on canvas and hung in groups around the space. Some of the images are a little processed, giving a somewhat fantastical feel. It’s not entirely unpleasant, and I found that this was well balanced with misty romantic style images of the local lakes. Adrian’s work has an aspect that I have mentioned that I love before- the ability to draw in the viewer. Some of the photographs have a crystal ball in them, which bends the light and changes the horizon line, bringing the sun closer in some, and creating lovely layers of landscape in others. The colour and intensity of some of the images is just breath-taking, my particular favourites are “Perfect Storm” and “Ladybower Reservoir”.
Adrian’s work will be on show in the Panorama from Thursday the 22nd of November 2012 until Friday 4th of January 2013.
