If you've visited Chapter recently, you'll have seen Sarah Taylor Silverwood's animated Art in the Bar exhibition, Love Bugs. This is your chance to see the work on the big screen, and hear more about it in a Q&A with the artist herself.

 

About the work

 

Love Bugs is the story of a busy landscape where creatures come together in scenes of intimacy, creativity, craft and industry.

 

Portraying stick insects, potter wasps, spiders, love bugs, silk worms and dung beetles in colourful hand drawn vignettes, Silverwood’s animations are informed by folklore, mythology, and heritage, reflecting on the way humans make sense of the hypnotic processes of the natural world.

 

Collaborating with Chapter-based composer, Samuel Barnes, Silverwood has been exploring manufactured simulations of natural sounds, to create an accompanying soundtrack that includes field records from gardens, allotments, Warley Woods and Snowdonia.

Ynglŷn â’r gwaith

 

Stori yw Love Bugs am dirlun prysur lle mae creaduriaid yn dod ynghyd mewn golygfeydd o agosatrwydd, creadigrwydd, crefft a diwydiant. 

 

Gan bortreadu pryfed brigyn, cacwn y clai, pryfed cop, pryfed caru, mwydod sidan a chlêr y dom mewn vignettes lliwgar wedi'u tynnu â llaw, mae animeiddiadau Silverwood wedi'u llywio gan lên gwerin, mytholeg a threftadaeth, gan fyfyrio ar y ffordd y mae bodau dynol yn gwneud synnwyr o brosesau hypnotig y byd naturiol. 

 

Gan gydweithio â’r cyfansoddwr o Chapter, Samuel Barnes, mae Silverwood wedi bod yn archwilio efelychiadau gweithgynhyrchu o seiniau naturiol, i greu trac sain i gyd-fynd ag ef sy’n cynnwys cofnodion maes o erddi, rhandiroedd, Warley Woods ac Eryri.
