Harry Hay reviews the recent exhibition Brancaster Chronicles at Greenwich at the Heritage Gallery. The show features works by Alexandra Harley, Anne Smart, Anthony Smart, Emyr Williams, Harry Hay, Hilde Skilton, John Bunker, John Pollard, Mark Skilton, and Robin Greenwood.
Hay writes: "... if one was to visit the Brancaster Chronicles website, and if they were to scroll through the archive, which is forty-four chronicles [group critiques] and counting, one would probably have to assume that no one within Brancaster could have predicted just where their work and interests were headed when it all began in 2013. The sense I get is of a kind of shift in thinking about abstract art. It is a shift towards greater freedom, yet at the same time a tighter and more intensive focus."
