Constructed Depth: Fragments and Contradictions - Aly Jackson

An exhibition of photography exploring 'northness', belonging and separation. At The Old Lock Up Gallery in Cromford from 30 June to 11 August.
This exhibition is a culmination of Aly’s long standing work around separation and belonging. The works include multi layered images created from single photographs, which have been gathered from as far north as Northern Iceland. Each piece represents a story, finished or unfinished. There are hidden layers within each image and some only slightly visible. There is an introduction to colour, albeit minimal, which is a departure from Aly’s previous black and white works. Sitting alongside these multi-layered pieces, are pure single photographs, often ones which are incorporated into the layered works, where the camera has been used as a brush to create movement and individual abstract images.

Aly will be joining us at the gallery for the opening of the show and she will also be holding an artists talk at the gallery on 29th July - tickets are genuinely limited and booking is essential - our Artists Talks are real gems and make for a perfect evening for any artist or art lover - topped off with a light supper

The gallery has a variety of workshops running throughout the year, the full programme can be seen here: https://theoldlockupgallery.wordpress.com/2018-workshop-programme/
