In Places “our paths might cross”, Hawkins traces real and imagined journeys through layers of folds in carefully crafted new lands. Two dimensions become three in Hawkins’ beautiful new large-scale landscapes, playing with familiarity and encouraging closer survey. This show spans Globe and Dovetail spaces.
In preparation for this exhibition, Yvette Hawkins held a workshop in the gallery. Yvette is a book artist whose practice involves intricate paper folding. She has been involved with the Globe for many years and was their previous supported artist. This part of the exhibition will involve 43 sculptures made from maps, so we’ve got a few extra hands to help get the piece ready for the opening.
