The exhibition comprises two complementary bodies of work and reflects her passionate concern for environmental issues and her life long fascination with the natural cycles that govern our existence.

Constellation is a series of 14 beautiful large format black & white still lives that map the northern sky. Composed from a variety of commonplace objects, feathers, eggs, fossils and shells laid out in her tiny studio, they elegantly recreate the infinite expanse of the heavens and their mythological symbolism.

Climax Wood, the second element in the exhibition, balances the vastness of the opening segment with the quieter more meditatively enclosed allegory of a woodland sanctuary. The expression Climax Wood denotes the state where trees reach maturity and the wood has achieved its final mass. Individual elements live, seed and pass away but the greater entity retains its formal presence and echoes a continuing spirit.

Born and raised in the Detroit, Michigan, car capital of the world, Karen Melvin first came to the UK to study fine art at Newcastle University and settled in rural Northumberland. The recipient of man awards and commissions, her work is respected internationally but very rarely seen in London.
