Where the Mist Rises

This showcase of work by Lyme Regis-based artist Annie Ward will be running at the Rotunda Gallery of the Lyme Regis Museum from 27 October until 5 December. Based on her research into satellite photographs and historic maps of the Dorset coastline, these abstract paintings explore the changeable spaces where the land meets the sea.

Annie begins with detailed drawings on canvas that she scrubs over with layers of paint allowing shapes to be defined, buried and rediscovered in an editing process that reflects the ever-changing nature of coastal margins. The finished paintings are overlaid with shapes reminiscent of map symbols, field patterns and topographical details. Veils of white remind us of sea mist while fine scribbled lines speak of fishing lines, tangled nets and detritus washed up along the shoreline. Working in series, layering, distortion and erasure come to play a key part in her practice, referencing the fugitive nature of memory and historical narrative.
