Delicate paper sculptures feature perfectly balanced against large scale oil paintings and charcoal drawings in this exhibition inspired by place. As an artist the work of Millie Moore concerns subtle ways we are shaped by the landscape through which we pass; creatively she explores emotional and physical recollections of her walks.
Millie studied Fine Art at the University of Ulster gaining a First class degree in 2013. Her work is held in the Arts Council of N.I. collection, University of Ulster, and within both public and private collections.

Visit the Sunburst Gallery in November to view the finished drawing installation ‘Curio’ following artist Miguel Martin’s residency throughout October of ‘Curio: Work in Progress’, as part of the National Big Draw Campaign.
Martin usually works primarily through the mediums of traditional still life drawing and installation. Using personal experience as his material he explores the biography of objects and their associations with childhood memory, storytelling, and domestic spaces. By immortalising his chosen objects onto paper he breathes new life into their history by presenting more questions than answers.
Martin is a member of Platform Arts, Belfast.
