Here: A Journey Along the Humber Estuary

Mon 22nd May 2023 to Sun 2nd July 2023


Ideas about the way geography and a particular “sense of place” affects us reminded me about the poem Here, by Philip Larkin (see separate attachment for further information and images). Over recent months, Here has acted as a source of inspiration for a series of paintings. The poem envisages a journey which follows a route from the “rich industrial shadows” of West Yorkshire along the banks of the Humber through to Hull and beyond to the North Sea and “unfenced existence”.

Open daily from 10am-5pm
