Exhibition / Installation
Singing The World: A Dawn Chorus Mike Collier & Bennett Hogg: paintings, prints and music
This exhibition was initially inspired by listening to a dawn chorus in a Northumberland woodland garden—a choir of sixteen birds heard early one morning in mid May. Together their songs, represented variously as digitally manipulated sonograms and musical transcriptions, form the basis of this show of vibrant and detailed graphic prints, music and paintings. The exhibition continues in the downstairs foyer with an animation of Mike and Bennett’s work: Chorus Lines by Merrie Snell
Round Tower Gallery
