Celebrating Imbolc

On 2nd of February the gallery at Duckett & Jeffreys was illuminated by colour from Maria Silmon's VJ set celebrating the solar festival of Imbolc.

Imbolc is one of the ancient solar festivals and heralds the return of the light. The growing power of the sun brings a 'quickening' of life force in seeds beneath the frozen earth and the sap rising in the trees after their winter dormancy heralds the return of Spring. The images were projected on to our sculptures, shown here: sundance, as part of the Quickening exhibition.
