    Wallflower8 July - 14 August 2016

    An Access and Vault Space exhibition by Jo Lankester & Hannah Murray featuring print collaborations that explore the symbolic and aesthetic qualities of abstracted patterns found on the outer layer of a tree trunk or the surface of rocks, and floral imagery. As with any collaboration a symbiotic relationship must exist to coexist. Trees and rocks share a symbol of antiquity, immense and enduring strength, and protection. In contrast a flower is fugacious and fleeting. Wallflower will aim to present a seductive and resolved body of work that explores this. Official Opening Launch: 6pm Friday 8 July 2016
