Fiona Hingston

Fiona Hingston lives and works in a village on the edge of the Mendip hills. Much of her work has been informed by this location, in particular the fields and pathways she walks daily with her dog.

Each walk becomes a space for gathering information, often subliminally, from a landscape that varies little from others found in the South West of England but her intimacy rooted to this particular place deepens her relationship to it.

Using a combination of processes and materials, (earth, ash charcoal) her drawings become a slow archaeological inquiry into place and the passage of time; the distance between the lived experience and the act of drawing becomes embedded within the paper.
