SOIL IS LIFE by Jackie Yeomans and PAINTINGS OF THE EARTH by Bob Walley

11 Sep 2015 - 14 Nov 2015

Over the past 18 months Falmouth Art Gallery has offered Postgraduate Placements to two Falmouth University MA students who explore soil and environment in their practice. Jackie Yeomans (MA: Art & Environment graduate) and Bob Walley (MA: Authorial Illustration student).

Jackie's ‘Soil is Life' are a new collection of paintings created using  soils collected from 4 counties: Cornwall, Devon, Dorset and Herefordshire.

‘Paintings of the Earth' are made from natural pigments by community groups across Devon, Cornwall and South Wales. The works were in response to a workshop led by Bob as part of an ongoing project with ‘Envirolution'.

Thank you to Paul, Ben, Dan, Bea, Mica, Dan, Umar, Mark, Lee, Connie, Tamarin, Karma Chi and all the other children and young people involved in the project.

Falmouth University's Postgraduate Placements are funded by the European Social Fund.
