CURRENTLY EXHIBITING



Sarah Berryman

Gallery 1

Sarah’s main work is ceramics and is focused on the use of ritual as a method of inclusion and exclusion. She is currently using a range of printmaking methods to explore the idea of layers of meaning, both figuratively and literally, using a selection of different techniques, symbols, and subject matter in an attempt to invoke a feeling or connection with the viewer.

Waking in Winter

Gallery 2

 

Tue 19th Dec- Sat 20th Jan

 

I can taste the tin of the sky -- the real tin thing.

Winter dawn is the color of metal,

The trees stiffen into place like burnt nerves.

All night I have dreamed of destruction, annihilations --

An assembly-line of cut throats, and you and I

Inching off in the gray Chevrolet, drinking the green

Poison of stilled lawns, the little clapboard gravestones,

Noiseless, on rubber wheels, on the way to the sea resort.


How the balconies echoed! How the sun lit up

The skulls, the unbuckled bones facing the view!

Space! Space! The bed linen was giving out entirely.

Cot legs melted in terrible attitudes, and the nurses --

Each nurse patched her soul to a wound and disappeared.

The deathly guests had not been satisfied

With the rooms, or the smiles, or the beautiful rubber plants,

Or the sea, Hushing their peeled sense like Old Mother Morphia
