Rea Brook Valley

An ongoing series of paintings and other works responding to the landscape in the Rea Brook Valley in Shrewsbury. The river flows through a ribbon of woodland weaving directly into the town to join the River Severn. New developments of housing and retail parks now encroach and irreversibly alter the character of the landscape.

Work made in response to a walk made with poet, Graham Attenborough, who wrote a poem “from non-place to another” as part of our collaboration for the Encounters project in 2019:
