Verity Pulford: Gardens of the Mind

11 September – 21 November 2020

Verity Pulford’s latest project Gardens of the Mind has been funded by the Arts Council of Wales and investigates the visual and physical correlation between structures and micro-structures within plant and human biology. The project was inspired by Verity’s time spent as Artist in Residence at The Walton Neurological Centre In Liverpool, as part of the Bluecoat Display Centre’s Outreach Program.

The journey this project has taken Verity on has been transformational to her practice. Influences include Ramon Cahal’s early drawings, plant collections at Bangor University Herbarium and Anna Atkins cyanotypes.

With thanks to the Arts Council of Wales, Ruthin Craft Centre, Bangor University, The Walton Centre and the Bluecoat Display Centre. Also Amanda Simmons Glass Artist. Rhian Hâf and Kirsti Brown for their technical advice and mentor support and Jonathan Le Vay.

This exhibition will be displayed at Craft in the Bay, Cardiff in February 2021.
