'Sculptural stitchings, layered paintings and coiled vessels all feature in See Unseen. In her intricate embroidered works, Sera Waters delves below the known surfaces to darker places unseen. Deidre But Husaim's precise and immediate brushstrokes explore the strata between medium and surface while also recording the relationships between people and space. Helen Fuller's hand built formations with their characteristic irregularities express the physicality involved in their creation.' GS
