This is one of Lisa Pettibone’s pieces on display as part of the Elements of Capability exhibition at Lacock Abbey.

I liked how the warped metal transformed the paths, sky, grass and surrounding vegetation into something quite surreal looking. It’s a bit like how Capability Brown dramatically altered many of the landscapes he was involved with.

The exhibition continues until 22nd May 2016

Friday Bench: Illuminating Lacock

Illuminated bench at Lacock Abbey

I loved how this illumination picked out the detail of the stonework behind the bench. Illuminating Lacock is celebrating 175 years since Fox Talbot announced his photographic negative process which he developed (‘scuse pun) at Lacock Abbey. There’s more on this over at Veg Plotting today.

The illuminations are 4-7pm from now until 9th February 2014.
