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...

'Nativity' by Ewart Hulse



From a young age my enthusiasm for photography has always been present, but it was not until 
an enforced change of career that I discovered my passion for alternative processes, and the craft 
and skill that is required to produce an image of quality, where care is taken over both the 
subject matter and the process by which it is created.  I hope to mix traditional skills with new 
techniques to create a unique blend of contemporary photographic imagery. I have recently 
exhibited in various UK venues including, Theatre Clwyd, Mold, Y Capel Llangollen and Library 
Llandudno.

Despite my passion for alternate processes the work submitted for the Engedi ADVENTurous 
is a wholly digital montage, however my desire to combine the old and new led me to include 
various symbols and icons from medieval painting; reimaging the scene of the nativity and implied 
response to the situation should it have occurred in the present day.

Digital photo montage, limited edition of 20
Framed - £125, unframed - £ 75
