The Gathering - an exhibition by Jody Little

The Gathering - an exhibition

 by Jody Little

London, 1946: A family come together to celebrate
a wedding. It is a joyous occasion and the first
gathering since the end of the war. It is, however, 
marked by absence. People cannot help but remember
friends and relatives not lucky enough to return home
from the fighting, both from the recent war but also the 
Great War almost a generation ago. Using a variety of 
printmaking techniques, ‘The Gathering’ examines loss 
and remembrance and considers how the past influences
and forges our identities in the present. Of particular
influence is the artist’s great uncle Walter, who lived in
Gateshead before being posted out to France in August
