Full Circle is our response to this moment in time, as people search for meaning and a sense of place. The circle represents vitality, wholeness, completion and continuity. Full circle leads us back to the original source, the beginning, our original position. What is your source? What comprises your circle?

Lorraine Corker

Performance figures strongly, both physically and figuratively in Lorraine's work, as does mark-making and abstracted reality. All these elements have tended to flow through the years finding different expressions along the way. Lorraine's plan is to create a different experience in each room, bringing to this her experience as an installation artist to reflect not only the various eras the work is set in but also creating the atmosphere as well.
