Blue Lies
Amanda Hewlett & Cathy Carter

2 – 25 March

'The wind is writing what it knows in lines upon the water’. 

What image does this statement evoke in the mind of the reader? How might it be represented visually? The ‘Blue Lies’ exhibition by Amanda Hewlett and Cathy Carter seeks to address those questions. Using a series of statements about water, Hewlett and Carter have independently created a series of works that express and offer their interpretation of what the writer had in mind.
