Dawn Beasley: The Garden of Alchemy

Ceramic artist Dawn Beasley’s installations explore human connection to the botanical world. In this exhibition, ‘The Garden of Alchemy’, Beasley tells the story of growth, decay, re-birth and renewal as nature determines to survive against a human backdrop of greed. Audiences are invited to immerse themselves in a beautiful garden of hidden delights, and challenges us to think about the value we misplace on the accumulation of wealth over the need to protect the environment that sustains us.
