Laura Ford in Conversation with Stephen Feeke

23 June 2015  07:30 PM

Taking place in the Waldegrave Drawing Room, St. Mary's University.

Laura Ford (b. 1961) is recognised internationally as one of the UK’s leading sculptors. Her solo show will be the first exhibition of contemporary art at Strawberry Hill and is being curated by Stephen Feeke, Director of Roche Court.

Influenced by Surrealism and filmmakers such as Jean Cocteau and David Lynch, Ford’s often figurative work strongly references childhood with a melancholic, sometimes dark undertone. She is well-known for her portrayals of animals, with which she explores aspects of the human condition.

This event will take place as an exhibition of her work opens at Strawberry Hill House which will combine existing works and new works made in response to the unique setting it offers. The exhibition will be accompanied by a specially-commissioned book by Dr Judy Collins.

A glass of complimentary prosecco will be served on arrival, and audience members will have the opportunity to view the exhibition before the event.
