Drawing is at the heart of both Charles Poulsen and Pauline Burbidge's practice. Pauline thinks of her stitching as drawn lines and she also draws directly onto the fabric. Both artists connect strongly with an abstract vision. Charles makes large-scale drawings on paper and sculpture which he describes as 3D drawings.

Charles' work is more about energy than any particular subject matter, the invisible forces and energies within the earth, which are bound into the square of the drawing where the marks are interwoven in a lattice of lines. He uses a combination of pencil, wax and gouache, in works on paper and lead, wood, wax and growing and training trees, in his sculpture.

Pauline's textile work reflects the growth and seasonal changes within the natural world and rural landscape. She uses fine cottons and silks, and has developed the use of mono and cyanotype print in her recent pieces. Her long career has connected with the tradition of quiltmaking, yet her images are far from traditional.

They have commissioned David Martin to make a short film for this exhibition and Mike Worboys to create a sound collage.
