ADVENTurous is an open submission exhibition exploring the christmas narrative, which we're staging in 3 UK venues during advent this year : at Engedi in Colwyn Bay, Leftbank in Leeds and the Union Chapel in Islington, London.

The work exhibited at Union Chapel will also be part of the one-day ‘ADVENTurous' conference, hosted by Greenbelt Festival and partners.

On this blog we'll be posting regular updates about how plans for the Leftbank Leeds show are progressing, with information about the contributing artists, and possibly some previews of the work being created for the exhibition...

'Heaven's Chorus' by Terry Mart




The ideas I work with have always been to do with landscape. From my early days as an art
student right through to the present. I have been preoccupied with how the land's surface
records human action, as a sheet of paper drawings or script.

Heaven's Chorus began as an idea called Song of the River Birds. I had this idea based on some
earlier pieces I had done which involve some kind of musical notation superimposed on a river
scene in an attempt to fuse visual marks with known pictograms. It features a sine wave of
vocal singing set into the sky of an abstracted landscape - I saw the sound-wave display at a
recording studio and the colour-coded voices and instruments were the colour of a landscape.
It all seemed to fit together in a unified way.
