The Paths We Cross
Briony Jenkins, Stephen Milner, Mike Thorpe
“In this journey of life, even though we may begin at different times and places, our paths cross with others so that we may share our love, compassion, observations and hope.” (Steve Maraboli).
It is so of these three artists, living in Aberdeen, Sale & Macclesfield, brought together via Newlyn in Cornwall, their paths joined by a casual conversation. A path that had crossed forty years before, unknowingly for Briony & Steve as students of Manchester School of Art, but all three universally connected by one birthplace – Manchester. Now joined in passion for their art, this a first opportunity to engage with their home city.
Their work encompasses painting, collage and film, and embodies each individual’s search for a greater connection through their materials and experiences of landscape and the human form.
