Hepzibah is based in Dartmouth. We adore her work and are thrilled she is joining us this year.
“My work blurs the distinction between human and animal. I explore this boundary through the visual domain of dreamscapes. The term ‘dream’ for me, umbrellas all domains of our mind space, including those of fantasy and imagination; dreams are the world in which we live our ‘other’ lives; the lives of our psyche.Through the visual mutability of human and animal, my work attacks the fabric of the definition of ‘human’; I strive to redefine the human from something ‘other’, something ‘superior’, to another mammal living and surviving on a shared planet. I use art as a means of evoking imagined and dreamed spaces and bodies, with the capacity for fluid and dynamic metamorphosis. In the loudness of everyday life, we forget the truth of our animal status; by grafting and interchanging human and animal, my work acts as a reminder that humans are no more, than a ubiquitous, plague-like, mammal.”

Charities confirmed to attend in 2017 so far include;
Denbury School PTFA – This Association helps the school in many ways, including raising money for the school, helping to organise events for the children and also organising social events. There are two ways that the money they raise supports the school: Firstly the PTA funds are used to keep the cost of activities down, for example, paying for the hire of the swimming pool and the instructor for the children’s swimming lessons and paying for transport on school trips. This means that the direct cost to parents is kept to a minimum. Secondly members of staff can ask the PTA for support with a specific project, for example, small projects such as the gardening club right through to larger projects such as the outdoor learning area.
National Trust – The Trust conserves historical buildings and houses and maintains the country walks and coastal footpaths that are owned by the Trust. They look after a quarter of a million hectares of land, 775 miles of coastline, and thousands of archaeological monuments and historic buildings.
Royal British Legion – The Royal British Legion provides lifelong support for the Armed Forces community – serving men and women, veterans, and their families. The Legion is committed to helping everyone understand the importance of Remembrance so that sacrifices of our Armed Forces past and present are never forgotte
