Flight from Silence honours lost memories and untold experiences. Artists Lisa Sewards and Anna Taylor deliver bodies of work that both complement and define the other.
Taylor’s Home Sweet Home – a Memorial for families of veterans is a collection of unique state artist books which contain the stories of women and children who have vicariously experienced the impact of war. Taylor’s multi layered paintings depict key war sites referred to by the families, seen from the air.
Seward’s work illuminates war heroes of the feathered kind; the carrier pigeons who contributed toward saving countless lives during WW2. In an installation of vintage drop parachutes the avian and wartime experience of flight, risk and valour subtly converge.
