Hull’s Studio Eleven presents a new show: A Mosaic Path curated by guest artist, Linda Ingham. The exhibition is inspired by ecological terminology and the idea of plants that thrive in adverse conditions. Diversity of flora is beneficial for wider wildlife and it is this idea that leads the exhibition and the work from the three participating artists: Judith Tucker, Robert Moore and David Ainley.

Having researched and visualised a metaphorical path, the artists present work from across Derbyshire, Lincolnshire, and Yorkshire.  Judith Tucker’s paintings tenderly record landscapes in great detail yet in a very painterly manner, with a lot of attention being paid to the light and resulting atmosphere. Robert Moore is a painter and printmaker whose work has recently turned in the direction of abstraction on a smaller scale. David Ainley is interested in the human touch in the landscape, and the unrepresented labour that often shapes the places we know. His paintings are most closely aligned with Minimalism, realised as ‘distillations’ of landscapes touched by extractive industries using the language of abstraction.
