Learn more about the Poetics of Place artists and their work, and how the thematic of the exhibition – our responses to space and place – is reflected in their practices.
Imogen Welch’s practice is concerned with recycling, re-presentation and transformation, often with autobiographical elements. By incorporating techniques more commonly found in craft, such as collage, frottage, mosaic, casting, and upholstery, her practice also references 'women's work' and folk art.
