Summary: ART FROM ARCHAEOLOGY IN THE VALE OF PICKERING
Etched lines in a linear landscape

Price: Free

Paul Musgrove was born and raised in Hertfordshire but has lived and worked in Scotland for the last 30 years.

Specializing in limited edition prints Paul’s images are about place, his surroundings and his printing techniques. These interests are used to create images which reinforce a seemingly simple mark making process, alongside the application of new mediums and more traditional techniques.

Inspired by his association with the archeaological excavations at Heslerton, not far from Scampston, the principle of the exhibition is to interpret the hidden landscape using artistic endeavour. It is not about the artefacts, structures and remains found during archaeological investigation nor those arising from excavation, although he is interested in the aesthetic qualities of these remains.

It is more about what cannot be seen or has not yet been interpreted, and how these unseen lines and boundaries, concealed in the landscape, may in some way help connect us more deeply to, and have some resonance with, today’s over cultivated landscape and our local environment.
