BILL MING: OUT OF DA WOOD

27 July 2013 - 8 September 2013

MAIN GALLERY

Launch event: 26 July 2013, 6PM - 9PM

Bill Ming was born in Bermuda and came to live in Nottinghamshire in 1971. His sculptures draw inspiration from personal experiences and a rich cultural heritage that originated in Africa, the Americas and Europe. Bill uses wood and various materials to create cultural collages which reflect the physical and spiritual aspects of life in all forms.

Curated by Lucy Atkinson, Out of Da Wood brings together a collection of new and existing works which explore the artist's use of materials and celebrates his skill as a storyteller. Drawing inspiration from key moments in his life, the works inadvertently tell much about the environment, culture, politics and history of Bermuda. Touching on the apartheid, the story of Bill's immigration to England, and his reception once he arrived; visitors to the exhibition will recognise and relate to the personal experiences described by the artists.

"My work is a journey of exploration, in which other travellers are essential. An art of healing not dealing, of exorcism not commercialism."
