'Haearn' (the Welsh word for Iron) forms part of a new joint exhibition that uniquely combines Antonia's modern day colour study of the corrugated iron woven through the fabric of the rural Welsh landscape, with Pete Davis’ classic Black and White prints from his early 1980‘s series ‘Great Little Tin Sheds of Wales’
Haearn / Iron
For over a century corrugated iron has been woven through the fabric of the rural Welsh landscape. While not unique to the region, it is nevertheless an integral characteristic of our countryside.

The material, loved by some, loathed by others, is so ubiquitous that it often goes unnoticed as it weathers back into the earth.

Haearn sets out to record what remains of these structures before they disappear entirely.
