We are delighted to be hosting our first artist talk by Jo Naden on Friday 26th 7.00pm-9.00pm
A Year and A day is the collective name given to a series of five medals, inspired by the C14 poem, ‘Sir Gawain and the Green Knight’ as translated by Simon Armitage; a story of challenge, where the world within could be said to manifest in the outer world. The poem draws on huge territories where myth and folklore abound within cyclical time.The intention of the medals is not to illustrate but to weave glimpses of insight into the journey of the poem.
Jo’s work is held in private collections both internationally and in the U.K.
Public commissions include Cadbury, Dudley Group of Hospitals and Queen Elizabeth Hospital, Park Central Birmingham. A Recently completed contemporary medal for the British Art Medal Society, TIME SPENT, explores the dandelion plant in a mythical/ botanical context.
