August Bank Holiday Ribbon Art Installation by Susan Williams
Local artist, Susan Williams, will be showcasing her Ribbon Art Installation on the gardens opposite the Council offices, by St Peter and St Paul’s church and the Manor House Museum.
Susan Williams MRSS studied at Kingston University and the Royal Academy, London and was an Award Winner to the Royal Society of Sculptors. She has exhibited widely in the UK and also internationally, including exhibiting in USA, Spain, Iceland, Germany and Korea.
The ribbon installation is based on a rainbow theme and links to the pandemic in a variety of ways.
The ribbons flutter in the wind, suggesting the sudden appearance of a stream of butterflies, reflecting the idea of people emerging from their cocoons after lockdown.
From other views the work captures and reflects light in different ways including that of glowing candles.
The ribbons also close up when wet emulating some varieties of flower, almost responding to atmospheric conditions. There are other references also. Please feel free to come and chat about the artwork.
