Black Sun: Roger Ackling

A Mead Gallery Exhibition

Sat 11 Jan – Sat 15 Mar 1997

Roger Ackling’s work challenges all interpretation through its sheer simplicity. Working with the sun and a magnifying glass as his only tools, he creates objects of contemplation from found wood. From the moment of his active involvement when he focuses the sun’s heat through the glass, the artist invents a system of marks that express both human endeavour and natural processes. For the Mead Gallery installation, Ackling will develop the meditative qualities of his work through their arrangement within the gallery space
