Spore Series

31 March 2018 until 19 May 2018

Oriel Cafe Gallery

Cerys is currently studying for an MA in Arts, Health and Well-being and is also  a freelance tutor at Llantarnam Grange Arts Centre.  With a passion for working within the mental health sector Cerys has created  the 'Spores series'  based upon the one in four people affected by mental health. Using brain scans she has used Petri dishes to create spore prints from those who are affected and those who are not. Once turned into a screen print she layers the prints four times in varied colours showing the one in four people affected.

In this abstract form all spores look the same just as on the outside everyone looks the same it’s the suffering inside which isn’t seen.
