Artist Holly Searle’s ex­hi­bi­tion con­sists of a col­lec­tion of em­broi­dered pop cul­ture art­works, all de­signed to pro­voke view­ers to en­gage with the fem­i­nist nar­ra­tive.

Myles said of his work: “These are es­capist paint­ings in many ways. They are not about the ge­og­ra­phy of the place but more about the at­mos­phere and emotional re­sponse.”
