Guest Speakers at Workshop Week included Janet Laurence, an artist of some range who has a significant profile internationally and whose work engages with enrivonmental, natural and cultural issues. Her installations often involve complex layers of images, transparency, glass timber and other materials and engage and interact with architectural structures. She presented a fascinating commentary on her work and how she investigates the relationship between cultural constructs and the natural world. Janet is pictured here with Maizie Turner who magically also appears in our next photo of
Phil Quirk. Phil is a photographer who presented his extraordinary photographs of the landscape. The works are quite formal and extremely beautiful and he gave us quite an insight into his thinking and his processes.
