Opening Hours: 10 am - 5 pm Tuesday - Friday 11 am - 3pm Saturday

Exhibition featuring the work of Marianne Edwards, Jane Hoodless and Mangle. These artists invite you to leave reality behind as everyday objects and surroundings take on the surreal quality of dreams. This exhibition explores ideas of perception, memory and time.


Marianne Edwards

A renowned artist working in North Devon, produces subtle oil paintings of brief moments of domestic life and preserves them in time. Her work is in many private collections and she has successfully exhibited her paintings in solo and group shows across the UK.


Jane Hoodless

Jane is a London based artist working from her studio residency at Cockpit Arts. Working mainly on projects inspired by everyday objects or memories, it is no coincidence that her practice is concerned with narratives around objects, provenance, and inheritance… "My childhood desire to inherit a museum wasn’t so much about acquiring stuff, as tracing the invisible touch of transferred ownership. The work I create draws together provenance, the stories of objects, and the potency of the narrative of the individual. It is about belongings and belonging."



The work of partners Diego Fernando Álvarez and María Paula Álvarez is based on wood. Both artists have an education as carpenters and the good knowledge and practice of this trade enable them to push their work to its limits. Through the modification of tools and the exploration of other possibilities of working with wood, they have managed to create unexpected forms at a dramatic scale.
