    Sharpe's Wood
    Liza Dracup
    18th Aug - 07th Oct 2007 Impressions Gallery Bradford

    Ever since she can remember, Bradford born photographer Liza Dracup has been fascinated by the mystery of the woods and what she describes as the “fear and curiosity of both night and woodland…and childhood experiences associated with myth and memory”. In this new body of work, Dracup has chosen to explore her intimate knowledge of a woodland space on the outskirts of a city.

    Dracup has said that the fear she experiences when going out to work at night is a driving force and a reason to return time and time again to photograph in these woods. Sharpe’s Wood offers us an alternative reality which is situated, as she says, “on the edge of the real”.

    Sharpe’s Wood is a new body of work commissioned by Impressions Gallery. It was made over a period of four years. This is the very first exhibition at Impressions Gallery’s new Centenary Square venue.
