Art / Exhibitions - Free Event - Workshops

London rubble, clay buildings, collected London geological strata to 64m depth, and miniature paintings

Gail Dickerson and the London Geodiversity Partnership (LGP) present a display mapping the geological layers of Wandsworth.

Also displayed will be Gail's paintings using pigments made from samples of earth collected from the layers under Wandsworth’s streets and buildings. Charts, information, geological samples, and small, sculptured pieces made of clay from deep under Wandsworth, including some sifted from the Thames Tideway shaft site in Kirtling Street will be displayed.

On 19 June at 10.30am, Gail and the LGP will guide a Geology walk from Balham station, encompassing Wandsworth Common, the River Wandle, the Thames Foreshore, and ending in Putney. An event collecting 'Thought Fragments' will also take place, adding a different sense of time and the everyday.

Gail Dickerson is a visual community artist and Wandsworth resident, who works closely with geology and how the land changes over time. Her knowledge of an area’s geology comes from handling raw materials - either picking up material on a walk or as part of a large excavation project. She wonders and visually plays with the material’s journey on paper before looking closer at the science behind why it exists in it's present colour and form.
