Exhibition: Absence by Ian Rawlinson

Ian Rawlinson has been running exhibitions at the Edge Cafe on Mill Road every year for the last few years. His latest is called Absence and runs from 1 September to 2 October.

ABSENCE is the sixth in a series of solo exhibitions inspired by Rawlinson's hometown of Cambridge and focuses on places that no longer exist or have significantly changed since he lived in the city. Prints, collages and drawings depict fragments of a vanishing landscape. His personal history is an influence on the work, and his search to find images that highlight all the change form part of his ongoing investigation into ideas of place and memory. In this series of work Rawlinson uses adjusted and abstracted photographs together with encroaching black forms, words and textures, suggesting ideas of transition and loss.
