The Heart of Light, The Silence:
Artists in Norfolk 2020


The Heart of Light, The Silence brings together the work of nine artists living and working in Norfolk.
Titled after a line from T.S. Eliot’s The Waste Land, the exhibition explores the artists’ engagement with the Norfolk landscape during lockdown – a time of solitude and uncertainty, but also contemplation and creativity. Like T.S. Eliot’s Modernist poem, the artworks in the exhibition draw on a multiplicity of sources and experiment with a variety of materials. Featuring both abstract and figurative works in range of mediums, the exhibition demonstrates the ways in which different artists assimilate the contemporary moment and their natural surroundings in order to make broader statements on human experience.
