Yorkshire Artist Bridget Askew
Bridget’s recent work is imbued with a sense of rural Yorkshire life, focusing on the natural world around her…
“For the past four years I have been exploring the notion of rurality, from the view point of community and the farming sector. The family farm, were I worked for above a decade, is the catalyst and point of entry for my enquiries.”
“I am not interested in documentation but in the poetical evocation of this small area in which I grew up . I initially use photography and film to respond to and discover themes of rurality, many of which are autobiographical. These narratives evoke memories and perhaps challenge preconceptions of rural life.”
Bridget’s work is currently showing at The Look Gallery in Helmsley.
