This is a joint exhibition from Will and Amy who have been living and working together for 15 years, collaborating on numerous exhibitions and joint projects. Their work and styles are mutually complimentary. Wood and textiles are combined in several pieces to create this exhibition.
Will Hall is a furniture maker and designer. His work is influenced by the philosophy of the Arts and Crafts movement. He uses native locally sourced hardwoods to make his furniture and every board is hand selected to make each unique piece.
Will works mainly to commission and exhibiting at Logie Steading is giving him a great opportunity to showcase some new original furniture.
Being a furniture maker is a job that he finds both satisfying and rewarding to do. Will feels very fortunate to have a career that combines design and creativity with practical woodworking skills.
Amy Neville is a mixed media and textiles artist, designer and tutor who uses nature directly in her work.
Leaves and flowers are both the inspirational elements and real components of her art. Amy hopes to highlight the detail within and preserve the beauty of each individual leaf or flower, as each unique leaf has a fragile quality of it's own to offer.
Within her work Amy wishes to encourage people to take a closer look at leaves and flowers and to appreciate them in a different way to the usual, piqueing curiosity in the humble natural resources surrounding us. Her aim is to create work which has mystery and delicacy to it and brings the viewer to question what the art object is made from and how.
Exhibition runs from 3rd November to 1st December in the Art Gallery's Square Room
