'A Month of Sundays' is a joint exhibition of prints, sculptures and paintings by Nicki Dennett and Mark Veale.
The idea for this exhibition was to create a new body of work inspired by the both the urban landscape and the countryside. As the exhibition grew closer both Nicki and Mark found life and work influencing their decisions when creating the work and because of this the saying 'not in a month of Sundays' seamed to be appropriate for a title. 'A Month of Sundays' was decided on because they did what was to be done in order to create an exciting, collaboration of work created and inspired by time off on Sundays. Nicki Dennett
During my time studying illustration at the University of Derby I found my passion for printmaking. Just after leaving university I had my first solo show at Nottingham Castle which came about after winning the solo exhibition prize in the Nottingham annual open exhibition 2005. When not out and about sketching or taking photographs, for inspiration, I will be found experimenting with different printmaking techniques in the studio. Mark Veale
When I make a painting or an object I'm concerned with the process of how it comes about, I am not interested in bringing to life a vision of how something should be or
what it should have to say. I have a faith in the circumstance of making while avoiding conscious deliberation and intent as far as is possible.
