Of Wood and Water: photographs by Michela Griffith

Saturday 14 April - Tuesday 22 May 2018

North Yorkshire woodlands and water have helped inspire our forthcoming exhibition at the Joe Cornish Galleries in Northallerton. Landscape photographer Michela Griffith returns to the gallery from Saturday 14 April 2018 with her latest collection of work, Of Wood and Water.

Following her debut solo exhibition at the gallery in 2015 in which Michela introduced her ‘Streamscapes’ celebrating the beauty and diversity of water in motion, she has continued to develop her distinctive style experimenting with movement in and through the landscape.

Of Wood and Water, is the culmination of her continued dialogue with the rivers and streams in North Yorkshire and the Peak District over the last 3 years. This has evolved to also embrace the woodland and trees along the riverbanks with the results forming the inspiration for this latest exhibition.

Michela explains, “Water is still the focus of my photography, but recently I’ve been finding new ways to photograph the trees along the river bank as much as the water itself. This has carried over into my exploration of woodland, and my interrogation of individual trees. These personal interpretations of wood and water, made over the past 3 years, reflect not only the seasons, as experienced near my home in the Peak District or during trips to North Yorkshire, but the curiosity that water has inspired in my practice. Water has fundamentally changed my way of seeing, and I now look at the land with new eyes.”
