Ironworkspublicart

An extensive programme of public art has been commissioned at Ironworks to deliver a creative programme of events engaging with the existing community, together with artwork to be installed at Ironworks. The artists commissioned will be delivering a range of talks, walks, workshops and much more in collaboration with local residents over the next few years. The activities and stories collected will inform the design and character of the Ironworks art through a series of creative commissions. If you want to get involved in creative opportunities to help shape and create a vibrant and animated destination, or simply want to find out about this exciting artistic programme, we will be posting further information shortly.

Rodney Harris MRBS and Valda Jackson

Rodney Harris and Valda Jackson create works in clay, simulating the surface of the brick walls on which their low-relief sculptures appear. Rodney and Valda’s work has both a presence and absence; an illusion is created where the forms appear to fade and emerge in response to the shifting light throughout the day and seasons. The work creates a tension between the almost ethereal quality of the piece - seemingly hidden – and the robust, permanent material in which they are created and located.
