Documenting ‘Unearthing’, an artist residency exploring Cranborne Chase AONB through its geology and earth colours.

Sara Dudman’s artwork explores our shifting relationships with the environment.

As well as making her own new body of work, Sara has been working with communities to create collaborative paintings and drawings that use carefully selected natural earth pigments foraged from the landscape. The rocks, soil and chalk are being collected and transformed into earth-pigment paint. The artworks will be compiled together to create ‘tapestry-style’ visual stories of Cranborne Chase’s natural environment, geology and history.
